Or if you're an APRS user, just send an APRS message (any content except 
a valid APRS callsign-SSID) to ISS.  The response will contain the next 
pass information for your last beaconed position (or the last beaconed 
position of the callsign-SSID that you send as the text to ISS).  
Unfortunately, I don't (yet) flag the visible passes.

The response message format is described at 
http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:satsrv and the response server works for 
other satellites as well.
