About & Pics


Use the ISS FlyOver app to quickly check when you can see the ISS.

* ISS FlyOver tells you when and where to look:
- date and time of upcoming sightings
- how far off in days, hours, minutes
- which direction to start looking (North South East West)
- how high in the sky to look (Elevation in degrees)
- and how long the ISS will stay visible (Duration in minutes)

* Easy Setup
On first launch, pick your nearest city, by allowing the app to use your location.
The app will remember the city you picked for next time.
You can change your preferred city at any time.

* Tell your Friends
Let your friends know when the ISS will fly over their city.
Select their city, check the times, and let them know.
Better still, tell them about the ISS FlyOver app.

* Data Connection
The ISS FlyOver app relies on a data connection to the internet.
Sighting data is obtained from the publicly available NASA Human Space Flight sightings RSS feed.
The dates and times shown are the local time of the selected city.
