Here is a web address that you can log on to and get announcements from NASA of when the Space Station and other satellites will fly over your area.

I just get the ISS announcement myself and it has helped me see it go over.
:rolleyes:

That's a great site. I was looking at it on a whim a couple of days ago to see when ISS was going overhead. The website essentially said, right now, so I went outside and there it was. :-)

Of course, don't forget www.heavens-above.com, they won't e-mail you a notice. However, they have great maps for passes AND very accurate Iridium flares--a real kick to know at a star party. You can make a star explode for the unsuspecting stargazers!

I like the heavens above site, although it's been a while since I've been on it.
