The schedule below is from NASA's Spot the Station website.

The International Space Station (ISS) appears as a bright light, which does not blink, tracking quickly across the sky.

The light comes from the space station's solar panels reflecting sunlight back towards Earth. 

The current space station crew consists of six men, two of which are NASA astronauts. 

Three of the other crew members are from Russia and one is from Japan.
