Following is a recent report of the International Space Station that I
made. ISS can easily be seen without aid if the weather permits. Sites
on the internet for getting orbital elements include (very current data from the Department of
Defense), (maintained by Col TS Kelso) and (maintained by Mike McCants). The last
site contains satellite elements of classified objects.
