    Click the link. Zoom in or enter your area. Find a spot nearby and click the view sighting opportunities.

    Go outside on a clear night and watch as the space station zooms by. Its really kinda cool.

    Link not working for me. The web page won't fully load or do anything interactive.

    I've seen the ISS go over, snd it's weird. As bright as the navigation lights on a jet, and crossing the sky just as fast, but totally silent.

    And you don't get to see it go from horizon to horizon. You'll see it for a little bit and then when it abruptly hits the shadow line where the earths shadow extends up into space it just disappears.

    It works for me. Try it without all the http stuff and just go with the spotthestation.nasa.gov
    or the whole link below again.

    Do you have your privacy or AdBlocker settings too tight.
