San Pedro de Atacama Celestial Explorations

The complete solution to observe the Atacama sky

Where to find predictions to observe the space station and other satellites?

The site is www.heavens-above.com
There you can decide either to register (easier if you want to access it another time) or simply select your country and city. When it identifies your city, click on it. You are then on the page where you can get different predictions. Among the interesting ones are of course the ones of the ISS. Try to look also at iridium flashes. These satellites have solar panels, which oriented correctly to the sun emit for a short time ( less than a few seconds) a bright flash. It is impressive to see. Remember that 90° is above you, so 45° is half way between the horizon and the zenith, etc..They can be very bright, and sometimes, even visible during the day.
