ISS Finder helps you to see the International Space Station (ISS) in the night sky. ISS Finder shows you the upcoming visible passes with details like the altitude and direction, and let’s you decide which ones to get alerts for. ISS Finder also keeps you up to date with information about current and future crews.
With ISS Finder you can:
- See where the ISS is right now
- Get notifications when the ISS is overhead
- Spot the ISS in the night sky
- Learn about who is on the ISS right now
- See some of the amazing pictures they’re taking
- See the upcoming crew schedule

- Apple Watch app! Now you can see upcoming passes and where the ISS is right now using your watch.
- Update UI
- Fixed lots of bugs
This is the one!
If you're looking for an app to monitor the ISS, this has everything you need. It uses your current location and sets alarms for every visible pass for the next ten days. (Or you can manually set your location.) Easy to set time parameters on alarms (so it doesn't wake you at 3:00am). And it gives you a rating on the overall visibility of each pass.
The map is also a great feature with "map" or "satellite" view options. My only complaint is that it does not show a day/night shadow.
Great App for engaging the Public
I happen to live in an area where clear skies exist predominantly, and have had many small 'ISS Watch" parties outside on my patio. This app is the best for enabling those events. Not only for the excitement of the initial sighting, but it gives me an opportunity to build excitement about Human Spaceflight among people who otherwise have forgotten about what NASA is doing. Keep up the good work and BTW I am a "Massive Tipper" (see the app if you don't know what that means)
The best app I've seen yet.
Not too many people understand the meaning of that interesting speck of light making its way through the sky so fast. It is amazing that for once, one could experience the full gratification of understanding the meaning of that one speck of light. Definitely download this app, as it will change your personal opinion on what humanity could do.
