Sputnik! is an easy to use tool for predicting when the International Space Station will pass by your location or when an Iridium Flare will be visible in the skies above.
- Predictions of satellite and ISS passes accurate to the second.
- Second by second countdown to the satellite pass.
- Automatically keeps track of the correct universal time. No need to worry about whether your device clock is accurately set.
- Notification of upcoming satellite passes even when the app is not running.
- Displays compass direction and elevation for your device to easily find the part of the sky where the sighting will occur (requires capable device).
- Rotate your device to landscape orientation to show exactly where the satellite will pass in the night sky.
- Share sightings via Twitter, Facebook, Mail, Messages and others.
- Automatic download of up to date satellite orbital data, even when the app is not running.
- Offline calculations, no need to be connected to the internet once orbital data has been downloaded.
- Input your location automatically by GPS, select from a map or enter coordinates manually.
- Save your favorite places for easy access.
- Audio cues for the last seconds before the satellite passes by.

What's New in Version 2.0
- Redesign for iOS7.
- Satellite data is now downloaded even if the app is not running.
The UI looks great, good job on the iOS 7 redesign. Still my go to App over the years and recommend everyone should download and then pay to remove ads to show props.
Would be great to see the app universal for app (I would pay a few extra few bucks).
Would also like to see a better night sky render, something you can pinch to zoom to match scale of your sky, and label some of the major stars, so that is it easier for more novice sky lovers to identify the night sky.
I use this app to photograph the IFs and ISS, sometimes because I am unsure of position I need to make last second corrections and sometime miss the event.
Great app keep the updates coming!
