Easily find and select your location using our map. Zoom, pan and search the map. Jump directly to your location using the pin icon above the zoom controls. Click the blue pins to view sighting opportunities. If your location doesn’t have a pin, select the closest one. The space station is visible for a 50 miles (80 km) radius around each pin (indicated by the blue circle).
Watch the International Space Station pass overhead from several thousand worldwide locations. It is the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know when to look up.
Visible to the naked eye, it looks like a fast-moving plane only much higher and traveling thousands of miles an hour faster!
