Satellite Safari


Satellite Safari is your tour guide to the universe of satellites that humanity has launched into orbit around our home planet. And later this year, it will become your personal gateway to a real satellite in orbit that you can take pictures and send broadcasts from!

Satellite Safari is the official app of the SkyCube mission. The SkyCube satellite is scheduled to launch and deploy from the International Space Station in September, 2013. When it does, you’ll be able to request your own images of the Earth, and broadcast your own radio messages from orbit as “tweets from space”, using this Satellite Safari app on your iPhone or iPad. For more information on the SkyCube project, go to

The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) writes: “My tests of the app were positive. No crashes, no surprises… A very cool app, which will only become more useful this fall when the SkyCube features ramp up.” Here’s the full review:

While we’re waiting for SkyCube to launch, you can use Satellite Safari to learn more about the International Space Station and many hundreds of other satellites already in orbit. Satellite Safari will tell you where to find them in the sky, when they’ll pass overhead, and where they are orbiting over Earth right now.

Satellite Safari can show you the spacecraft that will pass over your location at any given time. You can even get a “bird’s eye view” from a satellite itself, and see the Earth from orbit exactly as the satellite sees it!

Satellite Safari updates its satellite orbit data from automatically every day. All satellites include facts and figures computed for your precise GPS location, and updated every second. Many satellites also include descriptions that give you the mission’s history, purpose, and more.

Satellite Safari’s simple user interface and super high accuracy make it an invaluable tool for exploring the spacecraft in orbit around our home planet. Please feel free to contact us at if you have further questions. We hope you enjoy using Satellite Safari!
