would the ISS travel the full length of the sky in 2 mins? and no i dont know how to check.
Two minutes, in a westish-to-eastish direction, is pretty standard for a satellite like ISS.
Go to the site and register your location, by location name or lat/long.
On the menu one option is 'ISS passes', you can select that for future passes, there's an option for past passes too but I forget how to activate
Another method is to use www.wolframalpha.com 'answer bot' and pose the question "location of ISS on May 25, 2017 at 21:00 UTC". or whatever the
date/time [in GMT] was, and get a map of the flight path over three hours, see if it crossed you.
Play around with these tools, they make skywatching even more fun.
