Need advice on picking a lens

Hi All,

I have a ISS transit of the supermoon coming up on the 9th across Canberra that Id like to image with my FF DSLR (Canon 6DII). I normally do wide angle milkyway, but while that isnt easily viewable at the moment I'm looking for other reasons to head out assuming the smoke and welcome rain clears.

I have access to borrow a 70-300 lens or otherwise I'd like to look to buy one for future use. Is a 300 going to give me enough zoom to be able to get a view of the ISS similar to Otherwise I was thinking going big up front and buying a 150-600, likely which I'm confident I will use in other situations as well. I should at I'm very much in the newbie stage of astrophotography.
