The International Space Station will be back in Irish and UK skies from the evening of December 9 2014 to the evening of December 28.
How to see the space station?
If you're out looking for the space station and worried you might not be able to see it- don't worry! You literally can't miss it!

You don't need any special equipment- just your eyes. All you are required to know is what time it will be passing over and where to look. It's that easy!
There's nothing like seeing the ISS for the first time! For me, the best thing about it is knowing that there are people living and working up there. Who knows? Maybe while you're looking up at them, one of the six astronauts and cosmonauts on board will be looking out the window at you!
Once you see the orbital complex for the first time, you'll find that you'll want to keep seeing it over and over again! So be sure to tell all your friends, family and neighbours to watch out for the space station flying overhead. There really is no other site quite like it!
