+Flare Predictions
In this page you can track in real time all the satellites orbiting the Earth, with both 2D and 3D interactive representations, predict their passes, view their trajectory among stars on an interactive sky chart, predict satellite flares and transits (across the Sun and the Moon), find out the best location to see these events on a detailed Google map. You can also follow satellite re-entries and other special events, join the observer community, post messages and share your comments and observations. Currently in our database we have more than 9000 observation reports!. You won't find any other tracker that provides all these functions!

Read Observers' Reports! SatFlare.com is the only website that has a public DB of satellite observations where you can search for flare reports

Do you want to observe the International Space Station crossing your sky?
Install our 3D tracker for Android devices and you have just to point your phone to the sky and follow the line to find the ISS. You can also track the Station 24 hours a day with a 3D view of the Earth, constellations and more than 15.000 stars. A simple count down will inform you when you can actually see the ISS with the naked eye. Visit this web page for more details or for downloading the App.
