RE: ISS earth viewing
Another fun fact. You can sign up on NASA's website by filling out your area information and they will send you alerts with the ISS is visible. Generally something that would be best viewed with a telescope, but still cool.

It's too fast - binoculars are best. Thumbsup

This is a good resource.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I wouldn't say too fast since people snag pics all the time. But you've gotta be pretty damn good at calculating it.

That said, for simply observing, yes, binocs. I wish I had the patience that some of these guys have...

A friend of mine pointed at a twinkling star and claimed it was the ISS, I said I thought it would be moving pretty fast to maintain orbit, or a least faster then stationary.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: ISS earth viewing
Yeah like any artificial satellite you'll definitely see it moving. It will be out of sight in a few minutes.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Except for those geosynchronous satellites. They tend to stick in the sky where all those TV dishes are pointed.
