International Space Station Fly over

The ISS (International Space Station) passes over the world many times during the day. So this is not suppose to be a big deal. Coming Sunday in the evening at 7pm Kuwait Local Time (4pm GMT), the fly over Kuwait will last for 5 minutes. The usual fly over time lasts between 1-2 minutes. The Kuwait Science Club (KSClub) in Zahra area (next to 360 Mall) has an Astronomy Club which actively follows these events. The schedule for the International Space Station fly over can be seen below or on THIS SITE (Real Time Data).
