Geoff,
trying out the site at about 1915 UT, it was terribly slow.
It eventually displayed ISS at what I think was incorrect position.
By 1944 UT access was fast, and the position dispalyed corresponded
to that displayed on Chris Peates's site at DLR. The sighting opportunities
predictions available from another page on the NASA site, are correct
and current.
