    This is for the predicted centre line, where the iss would pass across the centre of the mars
    disk.
    You would need to correct for site altitude, but then errors in the mars, earth, and iss orbits
    also have an effect on the true view. But at least you know what to expect, where to see the iss
    buzz mars.
