The International Space Station currently orbiting around the Earth can be viewed with human eyes for the next two weeks.

Because the ISS orbits every 90 minutes, viewing it from Earth only lasts one minute. Even so, its shape is easily recognizable with binoculars. It appears larger and brighter than any stars in the sky.

Don’t know when to look? Three websites allow you to type in your location anywhere in the world and find out exact times it’s passing over head.

Check out Heavens Above, Sky and Telescope, or NASA to find out when it’s in your vicinity.
