NASA astronomy

I have been interested in the ISS lately.
I have found this page which is useful
http://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/view.cfm?country=United_Kingdom&region=England&city=Newcast...
But how do you work out the location on Appears and Disappears
The next one appears - 10 above S and disappears 13 above SSE
I just don't know how to work out where it will appear by using the information provided  Undecided
Maybe someone can help? Is it obvious?

Me Too!....
Click on the HOME tab and you see what the astronauts see.....
on the Observation tab.... enter your city, and country in the "Your Location" box... and it will show the expected track, in blue ( non viewable) and red ( viewable) periods... it also gives the next dates and times of the passe across that track, with a "brightness" gauge .
If you have a VHF receiver and can tune it to 145.825 Mhz... you will hear it`s transmissions back to earth . ( if you have a good vhf antenna )....
