Customer Reviews


I love the night sky. The first time I saw the ISS was during a sky tour about 15 years ago & I'm still thrilled when I see it. When I can coerce friends to see it with me, their attitude changes to delight and the first reaction is always "wow it's moving so fast!" This App is a real treat to those of us who love the sky but lack the stuff to be able to observe it; it never gets old watching it pass over. Thanks for being smart enough to know how to make this App for people like me who otherwise would just look up and wonder where things are.

Great app!

The first time I tried it was a cloudy evening, I did not see it. However I next two attempts... The last two mornings were very clear, and I saw the ISS travel through the sky perfectly.
In fact, I saw it a couple minutes before the time the app listed its arrival. Very exciting experience. I love this app, and will eventually donate because it doesn't have annoying ads. Well done.
I noticed another app I downloaded, has the crew members and other information about the ISS.. Just an idea if you keep evolving your app.

I love this app so much I donated

I've been trying to catch a glimpse of the space station and this app makes it so easy, I've seen it twice since downloading last month.

I love how it tells me the start and finish points and how it adjusts based on the direction I'm looking. I love the alarms I can set based on the forecast and pick the ones I know I'll be able to see based on the projected height.

I'd recommend this to anyone interested in seeing the ISS and I love it so much I donated in hopes it'll be available as long as the ISS is in orbit.
