Where is the International Space Station?

As you certainly know, (you do, right? ;-))) there is a
Space Station orbiting above our heads, at roughly
400Km of altitude, making a complete earth orbit
every 90 minutes (pretty fast, isn'it???). OK, but....
can we actually see it??? Surprisingly, the answer is
yes!! Well, the station is quite big (more or less the
size of a football field...), so with the right tips it can
be seen pretty easily. The tips we need can be found
here, at one of the European Space Agency website
pages. Good luck!!
