SatCam lets you capture observations of sky and ground conditions at the same time that an Earth observation satellite is overhead.
When you capture a SatCam observation and submit it to our server, it helps us to check the quality of the cloud products that we create from the satellite data. In return, we send you the satellite image that was captured at your location, anywhere in the world! SatCam supports the TERRA, AQUA, and SUOMI NPP satellites.
SatCam was developed at the SPACE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING CENTER, UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MADISON.

Very nice app.
I love to take photos of the sky with this app and in return I get a nice high resolution image back for my location. It is nice to help out.
Bit of a learning curve, but worth it.
Like the title says, it takes a little bit of time figuring out how to use it, but once you get it working, it is very cool. The hard part for me was that it didn't have a take picture button, but I figured out you have to hold it 90 degrees pointed straight up instead of at an angle in order for it to take a picture. The second part is don't worry if the satellite picture doesn't show up right away, it only shows up when the observation has been processed.
It's fun to see what "they" are seeing! I've gotten some great photos from far away satellites.
