Re: Just looking for some background

Sorry, but I've seen the ISS dozens of times. It isn't stationary like a star. Is is quite fast moving and crosses the visible sky in just a few (2-3) minutes. It starts out quite dull and poceedss to a peak apparent magnitude of approx -5.9 before it fades as it passes into the earths shadow.

Cheers.
