Absolutely! Especially late dusk when their solar panels catch the

sun and shine it your way.

The International Space Station is the third brightest object in

the sky, only surpassed by the sun and the moon. If you are using

Ubuntu go download GNOME Predict, of simply search for "Space

Weather Simple satellite Tracker".
