Orientation of ISS relative to Earth?

One other question: what's the orientation of the space station relative to
the earth? Is the same side always facing down (similar to the moon's orbit
around the earth)? Or can we see it from different sides as it passes over
(not counting low passes, just comparing "same" passes through the zenith)?
