ISS - Discovery

BRIGHTNESS: -4 (super-bright)

The International Space Station is the biggest, brightest object orbiting Earth. The station's solar arrays span 240-feet from tip to tip, almost as wide as a football field. The ISS outshines Venus; only the sun and Moon are brighter. For more information click here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/index.html

Looking Liverpool way from where? I ask because from Wallasey "Liverpool way" is most certainly not West - and the website said to look West at the early evening time. For me that is towards the 'corner' of North Wales I think

If the pass-over time is only a few seconds I want to be looking in the right direction
