You can see your own country/town viewing times from here
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/index.html

England viewing times here. (select your town/city)
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/cities/region.cgi?country=United_Kingdom&region=England

the ISS makes 1 orbit every 1.5 hours (or there abouts) but takes about 6 weeks to get back to where it started. The further north you are the harder it is to view.

Higher duration times and higher max elevation make it easier to see. Clear skys and not being asleep are a must  Shocked

Tuesday June 22nd at 01:32 am for Brighton is the best viewing time for the ISS this month.
Not sure if I'll be awake then 'cos I work  Sad
If you will be up then it will be visible for easily 2 mins and obviously the fastest moving bright dot in the heavens.
The eyeball mark 1 can't ditinguish features but a pair of 10x 40-50mm bins will and 100mm reflector telescope would be lovely  Cheesy
Must phone my mate with the 210mm 'scope Tongue

Very good view of the ISS last night at 10:55.

Problems yesterday with the docking of a Soyuz re-supply craft which is to be attempted again today (Sun 4th). What was cool last night is seeing a dimmer dot 15 odd degrees ahead of the ISS.

I have now seen the ISS with a Soyuz. Hurah.

Next viewing times...

Yes I've been keeping an eye out too this week for the ISS.

I've seen it three or four times - Monday at 21. 28 was bright for about three whole minutes.

My dad nearly fell over when I told him it is travelling at 17, 000 mph, is carrying three personnel and orbits Earth in approx.  1 h 38 m !
