Hi everyone, my name's Jon and I'm an amateur observer from the U.K(East England specifically). Found this site completely by accident and it seems that it has everything I could possibly need (& some!). Is there anything I should be checking out on here first?

At 7 pm from Argentina. 22:00 hs U.T. On Monday, May 1, a very interesting object, which had the peculiarity of going extremely fast and whose brightness ranged from magnitude -1.5 to +2.5, passed through the sky of Buenos Aires. Trajectory NW-SE crossed the sky like a bullet. I do not figure in Heavens-Above, I imagine it is a rocket stage launched freshly or an object that is about to re-enter the atmosphere. It was not the ISS we had observed several minutes earlier ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ A las 19 hs de Argentina. 22:00 hs U.T. del día lunes 01 de mayo pasó por el cielo de Bs As un objeto muy interesánte, que tenía la particularidad de ir extremádamente rápido y cuyo brillo variaba entre magnitud -1,5 y +2,5 apróximadamente. Trayectoria NW-SE cruzó el cielo como una bala. No me figura en Heavens-Above, imagino que se trata de una etapa de cohete lanzada reciéntemente ó un objeto que está próximo a reentrar en la atmósfera. No era la ISS, que habíamos observado varios minutos antes

Hello there, I am new to the site and glad I found it., looks like a lot of good info here. I have been following and photographing the ISS for a couple of years now. This morning (March 19th)I photographed the ISS in the Western part of the state of Minnesota. I noticed preceding the ISS this morning was another satellite, practically on the same flight path, In fact when looking at my picture the ISS did cover the path of this other object, the only way you can see it in my photo is that when I stopped the exposure you could see the fainter line of this other object because it was in front of the ISS. I was wondering if anyone can enlighten me on what this object may be. I have tried other sites to see if I could find info but come across nothing. It was visible to the naked eye but a lot fainter than the -3.3 magnitude of the ISS. Thanks

Hi everyone... I have been interested in the sky since being a young lad in the Boy Scouts. In the 70's I ground and polished about 8 telescope mirrors of increasing sizes culminating with my working on a team of 5 people that made a 24" reflecting mirror, and telescope for it, in Reno, Nevada. I continue my interest in the sky and amateur astronomy to this day, 50+ years later. I first heard about Iridium flares from a close friend in the early 90's. I witnessed a few random flares over the years but never subscribed to any service before that provided Iridium flare predictions like this site does. I am grateful for all of the work that it has taken to make this information so easily available. Thank you!

G'day all from Melbourne Australia. Had lots of fun last night watching the EV action. Now just enjoying the view from the ISS as the Earth slips past. Although I understand completely how every moment on a maintenance job outside the ISS has to deliver "bang for the buck", I was wondering if there could be consideration of cleaning the lens cover for the camera used for the HDD Earth Viewing Experiment? The views it records are fabulous, but it would be wonderful if they didn't have the dust smearing. Probably too much of an ask. Cheers.

Hello all Amateurs all around. This is Pankaj Jani, VU3PMJ my address is Latitude :19.1415 North & Longitude: 72.8255 East Zone-22, from Mumbai, INDIA. I have received Eight ( 8 ) SSTV images between April 12th 2016 to April 15th 2016 and Three ( 3 ) SSTV Images between August 15th & 16th 2016 and received QSL cards from JARL, Japan, I am very exited by receiving this SSTV Images from the INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION. Equipment used YAESU FT-411E, Frequency- 145.800 Mhz, FM Mode, Home made Qubical Quard Antenna & Yagi Antenna. The Elevation kept by using Protractor and using Magnetic Compass to locate ISS passes from Mumbai, India. ARISS has given DIPLOMA CERTIFICATES FOR THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED IMAGES OF SSTV IN 2015. WHY DIPLOMA CERTIFICATE IS NOT ISSUED THOSE WHO HAS RECEIVED THE SSTV IMAGES IN 2016, FOR EXAMPLE I HAVE RECEIVED MORE THAN 14 SSTV IMAGES.

Hello all! My name is Chris, I have been an avid sky watcher since 1986 when I had the tremendous pleasure of seeing Hailey's Comet streak across the night sky. I love to sit outside at night and watch for the ISS and any other Satellite that may happen by my neck of the woods. I also hold a Tech License and hoping to get into SSTV shortly. 73 and happy observing!!!

Hello all. I'm asked to give an introduction. I'm sure I already know many of you from other sites. For others, though I haven't been as active as I'd like for several years, I've been tracking satellites since Sputnik 3 rocket in 1958. When Hubble was first serviced, a solar panel was detached and sent into separate orbit. A short time later, I was the first person on earth to report finding it in orbit, flashing a little ahead and lower than the docked Hubble and shuttle. For a couple decades, I've been compiling the VISUAL list of satellites found here and on Celestrak. If you have suggestions for adding or removing satellites from the list, you're welcome to let me know. I was responsible for getting NASA to add Radar values (RCS) to the Satellite Situation Report. While we usually knew the size of payloads and rockets, there was no way to know the size and brightness of all other objects. I wanted to have RCS in order to have an idea of which "debris" objects to look for. Regards to all. Jay Respler

Hello everybody around the World. My name is MANI. I'm located at 77.6550 E and 12.9623 N (MK82TX)in the city of Bangalore in South India. I'm a Radio Amateur too, with my radio call-sign VU2WMY. My other interest and hobby for quite some time now is gazing at sky looking for Satellite & Space objects. Though I have seen and been seeing many spacecrafts, ISS always remains as my most favorite object in the Space. I'm sure this forum would help me to learn and enjoy this hobby further. I feel so happy to be here among you all. Good wishes and Greetings from INDIA- NAMASTHE

Hi, I have been looking up to the skies since I was very young. Some where in the seventies my dad would sail from Miami to the Bahamas and one time looking at the stares reflection in the water I saw a most wonderful sight. There was a plankton bloom that lite up the water in front of the boat. Squid would see this and chass after leaving a streak where they where going through. It looked like fireflies and shooting stares in a warped mirror. I have been hooked ever since. As long as I can look up I know there is a good life for me.

I'm an U.S. Air Force Veteran, Correctional Officer, and yup, an Amateur Radio Operator. I found this site searching for ways to track the ISS so I can make contact with it when it passes overhead.

Today at 21.02 UTC a Soyuz with the new Expedition Crew composed by Oleg Kononenko, Kimiya Yui and Kjell Lindgren will be launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, towards the International Space Station (ISS). In this page ( http://www.satflare.com/track.asp?q=soyuz ) you can simulate the trajectory, predict visible passes from launch to docking and follow the launch live.

It was just amazing the crossing over Buenos Aires, Argentina, I've made it with binoculars, which was very shaky, but anyhow it could be fixed and the odd shape of it appeared super bright. just in the azimuth, straight up, it went within 30 secs at the most between horizon to next buildings horizon. Amazing, and how accurate it was with this tracker. my respects.

Boa noite a todos! hoje, às 18: 00 de Brasilia, consegui observar o satélite NOAA 18.Minha posição era em Guarulhos-SP. Estava monitorando ele através deste site, e do programa stellarium. No programa stellarium, tinha uma linha azul, mostrando a posição do NOAA. da minha casa, eu estava tendo como referencia, a Lua, Júpiter e Vênus ao noroeste. Quando eu me virei na posição Nordeste, lá estava! Sensação maravilhosa! Vou começar a estudar mais o nosso céu. É lindo observar as estrelas. Vou comprar alguns equipamentos para observar nebulosas
