Customised Astronomy & Satellite Viewing Information For Your Location

Introduction

Heavens-Above.com provides free customised information for your location including whole sky star charts, predictions for the visibility of the International Space Station and other satellites (including Iridium flares). Bookmarks for all capital cities are provided below.

If you are new to satellite watching, start by looking for the International Space Station. On a good pass, the International Space Station is visible as a bright slowly moving star that comes close to rivaling Venus in brightness under ideal circumstances.

If you are located elsewhere, you can customise one of the below links to your location. All you need is your latitude and longitude information. This can be found by using the Geoscience Australia Place Names Seach page. Once you have this information, just select the ‘edit manually’ link (listed under the Configuration heading), insert the information and you are away! Remember to bookmark the page so you won’t have to repeat the process.
