Tracks the International Space Station
ISS Track allows to see the position of the the International Space Station over an interactive map of the world or an interactive tridimensional representation of the globe. You will be able to know if the International Space station will be visible (naked eye) from your local position in the next hours and find it when over you.

EASY TO USE
Launching the app you can immediately see the position of the International Space Station over a map of the globe and see if it's near you inside the visible circle Knowing the position you can see it at naked eyes when it's over you at the right time of the day With a simple touch you can also see the live webcam stream coming from the International Space Station. You will watch the astronauts activities with video and audio, all live.
|Nasa TV with often web cam from the International Space Station||Connection with: Page Station at NASA Web Cam stream on board of the station|
|Zoomable Map, ‘Keep Centered’ function||Measure units in Km and Km/h or NM and MPH|
|Customizable latitude/longitude format||Perfect results as using pro orbital software but in an easy to use app|
|Detailed Open map representation||We use only Apple native technology to create iOS apps because we love the Apple platform and and we love pure true iOS apps.|
FUN AND PRECISE
ISS-Track is fun and precise at the same time. Calculation of the position of the station is very accurate, the app uses the latest NASA code optimized for iOS to calculate it. You don't get an approximated position, you get the EXACT position, speed and altitude of the Station updated any 3 second. The route path is visualized over the map to evaluate if the station is coming near your position in the next hours (when meteorological and light condition are adequate you can see it without any instruments, just observing the sky naked-eye). Time of day matters, you can't see it during the day but only when you have dark sky and the station still get the sun light, so usually after sunset for around 3 hours and before dawn (for a period of 3 hours) You have the possibility to see it many times in a month and many nights you have 2 valid passages in around 90 minutes(the time it spends for a world complete orbit at 27 000 Km/h - 17 000 MPH) After some time you will become expert to spot it in the sky as soon as it is on the horizon.
