Scott,The space station has a spike shape to it. I would see it in dec. About 15 yrs ago on top of schooleys mtn. When i got the correct link it made sense. Wish i could post it but it wont send to here. So no ufo freak out! Yet

Sign up to "spot the station" at https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/

You will receive a text message notification when the International Space Station will be visible in your area.

This is a sample message: (SpotTheStation) Time: Mon Jan 06 6:37 AM, Visible: 4 min, Max Height: 60 degrees, Appears: NW, Disappears: E

That was the most recent time it was visible in our area. It will look like a star (the sun is reflecting off the ISS) but it will move in a straight line across the sky. It does not leave a trail.

Yes, it was the ISS. We were watching NJ News12 and they said it would be visible at 6:37pm. I went outside at that time and sure enough we watched it move across the entire sky. It was brighter than any star....very cool. We waved, but I'm not sure if they saw us! haha
