Absolutely wonderful, precise tool to see when and where anything in low Earth orbit is passing overhead, from the ISS and other space exploration craft, to Starlink satellites, to decades-old debris like rocket boosters. You can filter by minimum magnitude, show only visible passes, set parameters for what's defined as "visible" and more. There's a few more tools on their website, but for a free app, this is better than I could ask for.

I really enjoy this app as it can pretty much let me know when there will be something I want to see passing overhead. However I have a few questions. 1. Why in the list of nightly events are there hardly ever anything listed between the hours of midnight and 4am. 2. I live outside of our city and once my eyes are accustomed to the dark I can see quite a bit. But even satellites that are given a mag of 1.0 are very hard to see.

In the middle of the night, satellites are in the shadow of the earth.
This should be a fantastic app, it's certainly a great idea and they seem to have generally done a great job implementing it. However it simply doesn't work for me at all anymore, it worked when I first installed it, but now it is just a useless annoyance. My phone is constantly beeping with exciting things to go see outside and when I click on them the star map informs me that they're not actually there. Something broke. Also greedily they display a giant bright advertisement which blind you.
