The ISS orbiting the Earth

The International Space Station (ISS) orbits the Earth about every 90 minutes, for a total of approximately 16 orbits within a terrestrial day. Thanks to the reflectivity of its huge solar panels, ISS is the second brightest object in the night sky after the Moon and it can be easily spotted by naked eye from the Earth.
