Satellite Predictions

For schools, clubs & societies - space exploration and history

ISS Visibility - Northumberland, Tyneside & County Durham

Predictions here are for viewing the International Space Station from South Shields, but you will find the information is valid For the whole Tyneside area plus County Durham and Northumberland.

Bright (Mag) - brightess using the star magnitude scale - the more negative the number, the brighter it will be,
Time - Greenwich Mean Time or British Summer Time depending on which is currently in force,
Alt - distance above the horizon..... overhead is 90°,
Az - the compass direction.

The ISS boosts its orbit at intervals to counter the effects of air drag. On rare occasions, it may run slightly late against these predictions for a few hours as a result.
