(Posted 28 January 2017) If you are an early riser living in Canberra (Australian Capital Territory), you might like to look for the International Space Station over the period 1 – 6 February 2017. To the unaided eye, the Space Station will look like a slowly moving star passing overhead.

The International Space Station passes over Canberra on 14 November 2011 (the faint long line). The line of dots are the lines of a passing plane. (c) Paul Floyd 2011.

The highly recommended website HeavensAbove.com has further information and finder charts for the period 1 – 6 February 2017. Just remember that the charts are to be designed to be held over your head. Otherwise East and West won’t be orientated correctly.
