Did you ever want to see a falling star but don't want to sit outside all night waiting to see one?
The next best thing is watching Iridium Flares. The advantage of them is that you can know the exact time and place when they're about to happen. The big difference is that you're watching an Iridium (a satellite) that's reflecting sunlight, instead of a falling star.

This application lists the Iridium Flares that are visible on your location for the next 7 days. The only necessary thing to see them is a clear sky.

FEATURES:
- List of Iridium Flares for the next 7 days
- Shows the date and time, the direction, altitude and intensity of the Iridium Flare
- Add multiple observation locations or use your current location
- View flares that occur in daylight
- Alarms can be set to remind you before a flare will occur
- View the path of the flare on a map
