Found this app was useful for those who may be interested in tracing answer to what may be in the sky that could be responsible for some of the vague high altitude nighttime UFO reports. The option to search for debris as well as satellites was particularly interesting, not all satellite trackers include debris as a category. Some searches gave odd results, as some geostationary satellites over Africa came up even though they were actually outside my selected range. Good tool for the satellite watcher, as well as Ufo hunters.
Well now. The globe is indeed a work in progress as described in the opening paragraph. That was very thoughtful. Next went into tracking of a small area and especially the debris fields. Scored on the Fengyun weather satelites that got destroyed and it defifinitely is littered in high orbit. Also find unknown flashing thru. Not sure if that is a glitch, military or something else. For the time being its a cool app to study and explore
Whenever it's getting dark, 60mins after sunset, looking up and trying to spot satellites. I can now do it both ways - look up and verify with this app, or see if anything interesting on this app, then look up :-) One nice addition (to me) would be to link to Wikipedia or something for background on the satellites, from the small detail bubble. Also, if it is possible, save some favorite locations.
It's a great concept. But, I don't see any place in the settings to select U.S. measurements, and the range circle doesn't have my exact location displayed, so when zooming in and out, there's no accurate way to determine your exact location. Great idea, but could use some work.
Need to start at the beginning just to change on option. Very frustrating. Don't waste your time.
I like the app, but it is a little annoying that you can't just track a couple of satellites at once, like select a couple and then see their orbits an location on the map.
Improved device compatibility
Slightly improved time to download satellite data.
