    Not wishing to be rude, but ISS does not cross the Moon at a specific place -
    the line (cone) extended from the Moon via ISS 'paints' a band on the Earth's
    surface during close to 50% of each orbit (whether ISS is sunlit or not - both can be 
    interesting!).
    
    You can subscribe to a few day's predictions for your preferred site(s) by
    'Email Alert Manager' (Moon and Sun) at
    http://www.calsky.com/cs.cgi/Satellites/16? , or just inspect them,
    or use Rob Matson's SkyMap to search for transits/appulses of any selected object by any 
    satellite in a TLE file.
    
    Some other prediction programs offer this service, at least partially.

    If you are anywhere near Wagga Wagga, NSW  (147°22'7"E, 35°7'7"S)  you will
    see the ISS pass across the crescent moon.
