    Looking south into the clear night sky we've noticed a flickering light similar to a star is this the international space station?

    I'd say more likely to be a planet than ISS.

    Planets would be high in the sky at this time of year (unless rising in the East or setting in the West) and don't twinkle like stars.

    It's no good deliberately misspelling it. We all know you watch it. :)

    If it was the ISS you would see it clearly moving across the sky.

    So if it's static it won't be that

    That was why I went for something that tends to be more prominent like Venus, but didn't realise long time of year to see that.

    Quite possibly, it's the brightest star and is only visible from the UK in winter and is always low to the South.
