Satellite AR

Satellite AR


Ever wondered what satellites are flying above your head when you look up? This app will show them to you using augmented reality. Point your phone's camera to the sky, and small icons track the locations of various satellites. Those in sunlight are colored yellow to help you look for them on a clear night.

See "Developer's website" (linked from this page) for more information, including the full changelog. If you find bugs or have questions, please report by email, as there is no mechanism for us to respond to comments left as reviews. Thanks!

User reviews of Satellite AR
one of the very best, all flying satellite pulled down by database plus you can see the "UFO" or what you thought were ufo pointing or searching the object through your screen. Applicazione che permette di conoscere i satelliti sia in tempo reale che non, attraverso database e ricerca anche puntando lo smartphone contro il cielo, vederne la traiettoria (non tutti visibili ad occhio nudo).

great app when it works, but for the last 2 days keep getting "connection to the server was unsuccessful" offline demo mode? Ooops spoke too soon...its back up and running, keep up the great work!

i think their server was overloaded or crashed when the UARS satellite was reentering the atmosphere, i couldn't connect to their server, i guess, rendering the program useless. oh well.

This app is fantastic, and so is Google Sky Map. However... if you have a Droid X, you'll find that Ginger Bread has screwed the accelerometers axes to where the sky image won't follow your movements with the phone. Until Android decides to fix this, not even their own app (Sky Map) will work properly.

Wow! Allows you to select which type of satellite to track. Even allows searching for potentially visible object from my current location. I've had it installed for one night and have tracked dozens of satellites including ISS and Huble Space Telescope. Also allows you to search the satellites in several databases to look up their details (Apparently there are several Russian intelligence satellites that regularly have direct view of my home ­čś«)
