A few years ago, we actually saw the space station fly over our CG. You could easily see it with your eyes alone, pretty cool.

We also like to look up and see shooting stars and meteor shower!

we have seen the space station quite often, there is a web site that you can go on to see where it is and the path it is taking.

Cool! I live about 30 minutes north of Steinbach - I just put Winnipeg because it's the closest city. I get a view of the stars both at home and when camping.

There are tons of satellites you can see at night. I use nightsky on various apple devices we have to locate them... or even better, if you just look up and be patient, you'll spot them.
I find that if I don't focus on anything in the sky at all at night but be wary of any movement, you'll spot one. Once you see it you can follow it's path across the sky. Some take a minute or so to cross horizon to horizon.

From where I live the ISS is often too low on the horizon at night to be seen - but there are times I can find it.
