Best thing to do with the kids!

I am hooked on watching for the ISS. Last night we watched on the app as the ISS flew over the Pacific and crossed over the Mexican/Southern California border. We live in central KS so that was our cue. We went outside- parents, grandparents, and the kids and watched in total fascination as the ISS went shooting over our heads right on time- the most brilliant satellite you’ll ever see, almost like a comet. It was a 3 star rated view so it was awesome. We cud see it visually and map it on the app til it got to the Canadian border approximately and it faded out. A huge thumbs up for this app. And thank you that it’s free! Especially neat cuz the kids were every bit as fascinated as the next two generations! Fun to experience it together!

Love this app!

I want to thank the developer for creating this app! Great job! Our family uses it quite a bit. One of the things that brings me great joy is sharing this app and the the view of the space station with others who have never seen it. They are always in awe of the fact that they are actually seeing the space station with their own eyes without the use of binoculars or a telescope. The alarm setting to alert you when the ISS is overhead is a great feature! I can’t tell you how many times I have been talking with someone, when the alarm goes off and I tell the person I’m with to come outside so I can show them something amazing.

I think the best feature of this app is the fact that it displays future passes for the next 4-5 days that way if you’re someone who needs to plan ahead of time to see it you can do so. At the time of writing this review I can’t say that I’ve actually used the app to spot the ISS. I’ve set the alarm a few times, but for some reason I’ve always been driving when the ISS is overhead, so maybe I should set the alarm for more than 5 minutes ahead. 😝 high five to the developer for having this idea. Numerous people have been able to experience seeing the ISS that otherwise may not have. 🙌🏼👏🏼
