    Space Junk is better and is free on Android and on iOS store.

    To find the ISS, Hubble, Nanosail et al.. switch to the globe view and zoom out, the ISS is currently near Japan.

    Discovery should be visible in a few minutes. Look south (and up)

    SHUTTLE Wed Mar 02 / 08 : 21 PM < 1 19 19 above W 19 above W

    Would it kinda be like a bright star with the naked eye ?

    What would be the general direction to look, not up ;) from those posted ?

    It was a fast moving orange fit earlier in the week. Look west, 40 degrees above the horizon, and it will be visible for 3 minutes passing overhead and disappearing in the east.

    Has anyone seen if there is a composite version with multiple cameras at the same time?

    That was fantastic! I'm amazed at the stability of the recording, never mind what's actually being filmed!

    It's possible, but bloody difficult. I tried to catch the ISS with my telescope the other night, but tracking it was a nightmare!

    I saw the shuttle and ISS arcing low across the sky at 19:20 or so this evening. I was initially confused as I hadn't realised that the shuttle had undocked with the space station, so was surprised to see two satellites tracking across the sky where I was expecting to see just one.

    That was so very very awesome.
