ISS ground track

I have seen four very bright passages of the ISS since this one.  I have an Iphone app named "ISS Visibility" that predicts when these passages will occur.  The ISS appears brighter than the brightest star on most of these passages and is moving faster than the fastest plane in the sky.  I can imagine that anyone not knowing this was the space station would think they were seeing a UFO.
