my app alerts for ISS Detector and Iridium 57
One of the sparkly bits of joy in my life is the app on my Kindle Fire HD8 that gives me a five-minute alert whenever either space vehicle (ISS or Iridium) is going to pass overhead, meaning literally to pass over the sky above me. This is an ever renewing thrill for me.
