About this app

Looking for ISS Live?
How to see the international space station in your sky tonight?
Would you like to see the Earth from the International Space Station as astronauts see it? It is now possible to see Earth 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through the live transmission of the Space Station's cameras.

If you are a lover of space or astronomy, you will like ISS on Live.

ISS on Live offers you ISS live, the transmission of images of the Earth from the International Space Station by Nasa. You will also be able to experience the day-to-day life of astronauts watching them work inside the ISS.

This application integrates Google Maps to track the orbit of the ISS at all times and allows you to configure parameters such as the choice of different types of maps, satellite or terrain. It also shows telemetry information (speed, altitude, longitude, latitude), as well as the area of the country where the ISS is located. It also has a day/night map of the land with the limits of visibility from the ISS and the user.
In the drawing of the orbits, the visible steps of the ISS are shown in yellow. All this can be customized from the configuration menu of the application.

It has also been added to the Google Maps map the feature of "Map of clouds in the world" in Real Time. You will be able to add to the Google Maps map an extra layer for the visualization of the cloud map of the whole world. In this way you will be able to know the visibility status of the area of the Earth through which the ISS passes and observe it through the HD cameras of the ISS.

Live video transmission available:

1.- ISS CAM 1 HD: provides HD High Definition images from our planet Earth.

2.- ISS CAM 2: provides views of our planet Earth and on-board cameras of the ISS Live as well as experiments, tests or maintenance and communications with the Nasa.

3.- Nasa TV Channel: NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Television Service. You can watch STEM programs and documentaries.

4.- Nasa TV Media Channel: A secondary Nasa tv channel.

5.- ESA TV: European Space Agency Live channel. With Science and Exploration programming and documentaries.

And eventual channels like:

✓ SpaceX Live Transmissions: SpaceX Crew Dragon launch events.

✓ Roscosmos TV: live when there is a Russian spacewalk.

You can also watch these channels live on your TV using Google Cast.

Would you like to see the International Space Station?
ISS on Live will inform you of the day and time of the International Space Station's visible night passage. Through a configurable alert you will be able to receive notifications of the following events:

✓ Sunrise and sunset at ISS.

✓ Visible pass over your region: through the compass tool you will be able to know the exact place in the sky where the ISS will be visible to the naked eye and for how long.

✓ Day pass: observe your country through the live retransmission of the cameras of the International Space Station.

✓ ISS day pass in other countries: using the manual location tool, we will be able to know the ISS orbits over other regions of our interest and see their landscape through the cameras.

✓ Special events: arrival/departure of new crews (Soyuz, SpaceX Crew Dragon, Boeing CST-100 Starliner), spacewalks, launches (Falcon, SpaceX, Dragon, Progress, Cygnus, ATV, JAXA HTV Kounotori), dockings/undokings, experiments, communications with Earth from NASA and Roscosmos (Pockocmoc).

I am in amazement at the clarity of this app! I am confused as to why there is no search tool to direct you to cities, landmarks or ancient ruins (my favorite past time on any map) I don't have the option. Not sure about anyone else. This is clearer than Google maps by far. Love the live ISS feed as well as the clips from space, night episodes and the sunrises/sets. The price is irresistible! Thank you. Please fix up a search tool. It is difficult to scroll to my p.o.i w/o getting lost😊

I've been using this app for quite awhile, and I loved the ability to watch two feeds at once. But with the new 5.0 update, it seems that feature is gone! The station tracker map updates are nice, and the options for that are much improved, but I can no longer zoom out to see the entire map at once. The updated interface is clean, and I like it, but the one feature I used most (the dual feeds) was taken out. Bring that back and fix the map zoom issue, and this new version will be perfect!

Hello, Video recording and zooming options are now available. Please update to the latest version 5.0.2. We will continue to improve the app. Thank you very much.

Wow, I have never seen an app with live coverage of the ISS and its orbital path as customizable as this one! The app is usefully unique with its events and alarms features, something I've never seen before with other ISS detector apps. My suggestion is to allow the user to swipe down the live ISS camera to just see the map, as the International Space Station usually has nothing going on. Then the user can swipe back up or click a button to see it again. Overall, this app is one of a kind!
