Track, spot, and get crew data for the ISS and Tiangong; and track and spot the Hubble, too! These are the 3 largest artificial satellites in Earth's orbit.
Tracks and predicts passes for the three largest artificial objects in Earth orbit—International Space Station, Chinese Space Station, and Hubble Space Telescope—in 3D and real-time on a beautiful photorealistic 3D model of the Earth. ISS Real-Time Tracker 3D does even more. Get detailed spotting information on upcoming ISS, Tiangong, and Hubble flyovers from your current location for up to 30 days. Set alerts in your calendar with one tap so you never miss a flyover. It provides all the information you need to spot the station and ratings to help you select the best flyovers to view. Tweet the current crew members and get their bios and stats. Watch live NASA TV programming, and get live HD video of Earth from the space station. ISS Real-Time Tracker 3D is the only iOS app with all these features and capabilities. Apple Watch app included. It also runs on Apple silicon Macs!

Ratings and Reviews
App is great for tracking the International Space Station
I have other general apps or software programs about space that will show me where the ISS is, but this is a fantastic app for keeping tabs on when you can view the ISS in your skies.
I had alerts set that popped up in my calendar with the perfect amount of lead time - without any real thinking or planning on my part. This app makes it easy. Thank you.

Thanks for the great feedback!
Provides useful and accurate information and easy to use. Thank you.
I have used this many times to view the ISS. App functions as it should and makes keeping up to date on location so easy. I like the extra information on each astronaut and adds to the enjoyment of seeing and knowledge of the specialities of the astronauts. Thanks again for providing this.

So glad you like the app and that it's helping you in viewing the ISS. Thank you for your great review and feedback!
Very interesting, fun, app, for a very senior shut-in.
I am a disabled 86-yr old whose practical “universe” is circumscribed by the walls of my rather small home. Being a life-long space buff, “orbiting” the Earth, via the ISS, gives me hours of amusement and intellectual stimulation both of which are essential for me. The narrow minds apparently reflected by some of the site’s negative reviews are to be pitied.
