International Space Station App

Does anyone know of a good Android App for International Space Station sightings? Good opportunities for sightings are coming up and I was just wondering what everyone else was using.

Heavens Above is a good website, but idk of an app.
That site also shows sightings for stars and Iridium Flares which, I think, are MUCH cooler than the ISS.

I know one for PC.s (Oribitron) It is a general satellite tracking program.

Alas, I just got an Android phone what,,, 2 weeks ago I think.. Yup, 2 weeks tomorrow, And since I did not have time to play with it when I had full 4G I'm kind of slow to find apps till I get back into the land of high speed.. Right now I"M "On Edge" as it were.

Works great though.

I zoomed in on my house and it shows me in my swimming pool either last year or earlier this year. Good thing it doesn't zoom in too close.

Did a search using a non-google search engine this morning and found some intersting stuff, but nothing like what you want. So I tried Google just now.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...detector&hl=en

Takes you to an APP that is exactly what you want from the looks of it (Please make your own decision)


And you may find this one interesting too: It is still loading as I type:

NASA App, Website Puts Space Station Live Data at Public's Fingertips | | Space.com

It is NOT, however, what you were asking for.. Does look interesting though.

I've got this one and the NASA App. Both are great so far. Tonight tomorrow and Wednesday nights should be great viewing nights.

I've never looked for the Iridium Flares yet. I understand they are really cool. The International Space Station has people on it.....especially women...and we are trying to expose our granddaughter to all sorts of experiences. About a month ago we visited the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama and at 8 years old, she was really impressed! And so was I!!!! So while she is with us, I think we will concentrate of the space station.

When I'm by myself I'll definitely go out and look for the Flares.
