Subject : ISS To Pass In Front of the Moon
The International Space Station (ISS), the largest artificial satellite in orbit, will pass right in front of the Moon today (10th March 2011) as seen from parts of Lahore. If you live there, have clear skies and a camera, by all means, share pictures with us!

Pass details: link.

You don't need a telescope and not even a binocular to see the ISS and its pass/transit.

Here is a preview of what you might see through a telescope, however:

The ISS pass from Lahore will be more central than in these pictures.

Good luck.
