International Space Station visible this week

If you are an early riser, you can see the International Space Station (ISS) pass overhead in the Cockermouth Area over the next week.

Starting early tomorrow morning (30th January), ISS will pass over head at 07:14 in SSE direction reaching magnitude 1.7. It starts to become visible just a couple of minutes before that and disappears from view by 07:17.

As the week progresses the passes get earlier. For full details of the passes for Cockermouth follow this link to Heavens Above. If you are observing anywhere away from Cockermouth the timings and visibility may be different, so go to the Heavens Above main page and enter your own location there.
