Short Guide

You guide your way through the world of CalSky using the menus on the top. To make navigation easier, the software takes care of your level of experience – hence, everybody finds the information she/he is looking for! We are sure you will re-visit this site. Therefore we provide the technique to save your coordinates and all program settings in your personal file. You may find the interface in the User Profiles, or by clicking on the Earth globe in the position control box.

See the International Space Station ISS as it silently crosses the sky during visible passes – an easy target to the naked eye.
Have you ever wanted to see the ISS cross the front of the Sun or Moon yourself? Here you get accurate predictions for these rare events (looking at the Sun requires proper safety equipment). Get a larger chance by traveling to transits taking place within 25 km. Even want to try to catch the ISS occulting a planet or a bright star?Another bright objects orbiting the Earth are Tiangong-1 and Tiangong-2.
Try out our E-mail Alert Manager. You first need to register and give your e-mail address; it’s free − then you can subscribe to aurora alerts, good ISS passes and Iridium flares, satellites and ISS transiting the Sun or planets, your detailed daily celestial calendar, or simply get warned of the full Moon by e-mail.
Zoom into weather satellite images, as if the satellite were above your site.
Observe the star chart of your observing site.

 Highlights

You can receive your daily personal celestial calendar – selected from thousands of events. Then import events into Outlook, or other personal planner software – to be notified before an event takes place.
Do you just want to find out the exact times of Sunrises or Moon phases?
Explore the eclipses of our solar system! You can see solar and lunar eclipses; or explore how the moons of Jupiter play with their shadows.
You can specify your observation site using an interactive interface – using our highly accurate map coordinate transformations, or simply query our geographic database containing 10 million names.
Find and see the maximum phase of any solar eclipse from 1900 – 2100 from any place on Earth using our interactive eclipse maps.
The more experienced amateur-astronomer will find much, much more information at her or his fingertips – your valuable tool from astronomers.
