The International Space Station (ISS) is back over UK skies with bright passes during June 2013.

The ISS is the largest Space Station/ laboratory ever built orbiting the Earth, it can be spotted with the naked eye at certain times as it orbits the planet at 17500mph at an altitude of roughly 200 miles.

Spotting the station is very easy and you don’t need any special equipment, only your eyes.

See the Beginners Guide to Seeing the ISS to see how easy it is to spot it sailing over. You can also see this great guide on how to watch and photograph the ISS.

All you need to know is; when and where the ISS will be passing over your location, luckily the United Kingdom is small enough for most of us who live there to see bright ISS passes at the same time.

Only these bright passes are included in the predictions and the fainter, less easy ones have been left out.

The table below gives approximate ISS pass times and basic information and will help you spot the station as it passes over.
Only bright passes which can be seen from the UK are listed and the information is approximate.  Timings may differ by a few tens of seconds, dependant on observer’s location. Times may change at short notice if the Station performs an orbital boost and changes its orbit. All Timings are local time.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time, get your cameras ready and enjoy the ISS as it passes over in June. June ISS passes will occur later in the evenings and on some evenings be seen throughout the whole night.

Good luck and clear skies…..

      I live in the North West too and have spent the last couple of weeks watching it as it flies over. I must have seen it before but thought it was a plane but now I know where and when to look out for it, it is impossible to miss.
