This application reveals all iridium flares and satelittes (including international space station and amateur radio satellites) passing by at your location.
An auto-adjusting compass pointing in the direction of the satellite or flare helps you tracing the object.
Notifications can be enabled to warn you whenever a satellite of interest passes by.

The actual data is taken from www.heavens-above.com. They did a great job so check out their website too.
This is NOT the official www.heavens-above.com Android application although the name may suggest this.

    Seems to cover all my needs. Tracking across sky, tracking around the earth, compass, brightness, info about object (satellite, rocket body,...). Filters out daylight hours (though also filters our daylight iridium flares - so loss of one star)

    Would buy pay version but one issue , no option to hide non functional amateur radio satellites.

    Much of the data doesn't load for me, but I still get the basic satellite brightness, time, and direction. I'll probably keep using it for now.

    Great for finding satellites but the compass does not work at all, never points towards the event location it just spins opposite the direction I turn. Notifications not working for me either unless I have the app running.
