AS FEATURED IN THE APP STORE Satellite Visibility displays daily predictions for when satellites will be visible for any location. This includes the International Space Station, the Space Shuttle, and the Hubble Space Telescope. It can display a chart of the whole sky, or a more detailed chart showing the path of the satellite across the sky.FEATURES- Use the GPS to get your current location, or enter the location manually.- Define and save multiple locations, with a different magnitude limit for each location.- Highlights passes for satellites that are currently visible in green.- Dark colour scheme to help maintain night vision.- Saves passes and charts on the device for use without internet access.- Whole sky chart. - Detailed sky chart.- Ground Plot Chart.PLEASE NOTE:- When refreshing passes for a location using a wifi connection, all the pass charts are downloaded and saved automatically.- When using a cellular data connection, the charts for all the passes will not be downloaded automatically. Instead, the charts are downloaded and saved as the charts are viewed manually.- Some of the satellites shown may not be visible at your location.- Light pollution in urban areas can make the sky brighter, which makes satellites harder to see.- Satellites need to be lit by the sun in order to be visible, but need to be brighter than the sky to be seen.-- This is why all the satellite passes only occur during morning and evening twilight. -- The time that twilight occurs changes throughout the year.-- The length of twilight is shorter at the equator, and much longer near the poles.-- Later at night the satellites are not lit by the sun, and so are not visible. Requires an internet connection to download pass data. All the charts and pass data is supplied by www.heavens-above.com.
