It has just come to my attention that the orbit of the ISS is aligned to make for spectacular viewing over the next few days. Here are the pass times for Warren, MI in EDT:
Date Brightness Start                Highest point        End

21 Jun  -1.9    22:07:21   10° NW    22:10:00   36° N     22:13:25   10° E
21 Jun  -1.8    23:43:52   10° WNW   23:46:06   26° WSW   23:46:06   26° WSW

23 Jun  -3.3    21:55:59   10° NW    21:59:12   74° NNE   22:02:21   10° ESE

24 Jun  -1.8    22:38:47   10° WNW   22:41:29   25° SW    22:43:01   18° S
25 Jun  -2.8    21:44:33   10° WNW   21:47:40   49° SW    21:50:47   10° SE
If you're not familiar with the scale for apparent magnitude, roughly negative numbers for brightness mean it's really bright. On the Friday and Saturday passes, it will be high in the sky and brighter than any planet!

    Pity you didn't bring your telescope.

    Where can I find the viewing chart? I would like to see when it's best for my area.

    Awesome. Thanks for the heads up.

    Caught it for a few seconds tonight, broken cloud cover made it more challenging to follow. Better luck tomorrow night I hope.
