Check out ISS - Visible Passes for a 10 day out prediction of ISS passes.
Hmmm, that one shows different data than the one I use.

I use the one from NASA. Figure if I already paid for it I might as well use it. Same one from the post above me.

I don't think we'll be seeing much tonight. It's quite cloudy out there.

My boys and I were out at 8:33 pm yesterday evening, but we didn't see it. There was a bright star in the southwest, but it didn't move.
