Re: Hopefully the weather will be clear that day

If you follow the link in the article there is a lovely animation of the flyby. The good news is that the ISS will still be around in 2029 if you believe the animation. Bad news is you don't really get a sense of where the best place to see the thing is. Can't find any useful maps online that I trust. It looks as if closest approach will be somewhere over mid-Atlantic, so I'm guessing you'd get a better view from UK than RSA, assuming you can find decent dark skies here (and no clouds!)
