Very much a basic backyard astronomer here....wondering if it is possible to see the ISS from my back garden?
I have found a page on the NASA site where you can see the sighting info over my location, but wondered if i need bino's or a telescope?
Could me and the kids make it out from here? I guess it would be a dot at most, but it would be cool to see.
Is there a way to identify it? Any specific characteristics?
Thanks for any info.
I have looked online, but get a load of co-ordinates and data that i haven't got a clue about, so i'd welcome a laymans version please.
I'm in the south (UK).
