Track the ISS with NASA's new 'Spot the Station' mobile app.

Space fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the International Space Station streaking across the sky are getting a much-needed digital tool.

NASA just released a new "Spot The Station" app, which can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android devices.

The application improves upon the space agency’s official "Spot the Station" website, delivering added capabilities and information to expand the International Space Station (ISS) tracking experience for both casual stargazers and NASA acolytes.

The app was created by the International Space Station Program at NASA's Space Operations Mission Directorate and the Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation. It's a special branch of the Prizes, Challenges and Crowdsourcing program in the agency's Space Technology Mission Directorate. "Spot the Station's" code is open source for the public to access, modify and customize for themselves and to offer valuable developer feedback.
