The young miss and I tracked the International  Space Station tonight. It appeared in the west and scooted in a four-minute arc across the sky before disappearing in the northeast. You can check out this page to find times when the ISS (and other large orbiting things) are visible from your location.

For another few days, the ISS will be in continuous sunlight as it orbits the Earth. So when you do spot it, it will be a horizon to horizon view. It will be as bright as the brightest stars in the sky, but not as bright as Venus, the evening star.
