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.

Prior to becoming the first Canadian Commander of the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield reflects on his life and imparts some sound advice on how a person can achieve their goals. Credit: CSA/NASA

In our last episode, CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield used the force--er, microgravity--to make a peanut butter and honey tortilla that was "not too bad." Now he faces a new challenge: dehydrated spinach. Can Chris harness the resources of the ISS to deal with the persistent issue of dried space greens? The fate of the Commander's diet is decided in the very last seconds, so keep watching to the end!

The International Space Station crews about 3 -- 6 people at a time, but sometimes unwelcome guests appear in the form of fungus and bacteria. To keep the world's largest orbital laboratory clean, Commander Chris Hadfield uses a floating microbial air sampler to test for nasties. Watch until the end to see what he finds! Credit: CSA/NASA

I am going to miss him after May when he comes back to Earth :D
Have you done any space walks? If so, what was it like?
I was Canada's first spacewalker, doing two to help build the mighty Canadarm2 robot onto ISS. It was the most magnificent experience of my life. Alone in a 1-person spaceship (my suit), just holding on with my one hand, with the bottomless black universe on my left and the World pouring by in technicolor on my right. I highly recommend it.
