For October 6, ISS can be seen for three minutes, which will be enough to see the station as it moves at a faster speed. It will be visible from the west-northwest part of the sky and then move to the southeast when it reaches a high point of 68 degrees from a distance.
To see the ISS, you will need a chance to see it because it is moving really fast and it is not always visible to the naked eye. Meanwhile, cloudy weather conditions will not have much effect as the temperature will drop to around 60 degrees.

Refer to the station monitoring schedule
ISS can be seen without the need for binoculars because, like the moon, it reflects light from the sun. However, each time it passes at a different time, it is in a different situation. Also, it is possible that the station will look incredible and bright for a few minutes while sometimes it looks very mediocre, so it cannot be seen.
For Wednesday, October 7th, the ISS can be seen twice: 6:49 pm for about 6 minutes and then 8:30 pm for just one minute.
