I can spot it in less than 30 seconds! With help of this site: (which I had posted long back)

Heavens-Above Home Page

With it you can also spot many other satellites. Like Hubble Space Telescope or Chinese Tiangong


There is also android app. Just point at sky and it will show you which satellite is passing by.

For those interested, 11 November 2012 early morning (around 5.30AM) would be good day to spot ISS. It will be bright enough.

If you are unaware, you will think its some plane OR a broken star!!

But its actually a space station.
