See The Iss

Yes, because the ISS can be seen naked eye (it’s brighter than Venus). The tricky part is following it. Use a low power eyepiece to give you the most amount of telescopic field of view, then if possible have a friend initially aim the telescope using the finderscope as you look through the eyepiece.

International Space Station Area Sightings

The ISS-ABOVE is a single-board computer with a program that calculates where the International Space Station is at all time. Hooked it up to a TV and it displays screens with information that show you where the ISS is and when you can see it in your skies. The ISS live feed / stream gives you the possibilty to watch behind the scenes of the international space station. It`s interesting to see the station go around the globe and to see the different nations, the change between day and night or simply the different weather situations. How to View the International Space Station. Orbiting hundreds of miles above the Earth, the International Space Station is inhabited by astronauts from multiple countries, who live on board for months at a time. Many people think that to see ISS you need to have a powerful optical instrument but in fact, you can see ISS even without a telescope. You can see it with a naked eye only in the form of a moving star. We have a question today: Can we see it the International Space Station with Binoculars? Let’s find it out.
