Default Satellite Tracking.

There is a great little website that will predict any satellites that will be visible from your location at any time, including the ISS and the space shuttle. It also predicts "Iridium flares", these are special satellites that reflect the sun of it's MMA, or Main mission antenna. These flares can be as bright as magnitude -9, brighter than venus and bright enough to cast shadows.

It also predicts the sun moon and the major planets locations. The satelitte tracking information is exact to the second, and will show its brightness and exact path across the sky, relative to your location.

Have a look see.

Jase.

Default Re: Satellite Tracking.

I use that site for visual tracking with my telescope as it uses an autostar computer controlled handset, so you can program it to find all the passes of any satellite in your area and timezone..
