  • Show HN: The Astro App
    My site has this but only for satellites. https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/ For OP I'd suggest doing calendar events for notifications rather than Web Push. Web Push is very difficult to set up, users are suspicious of it, and it doesn't guarantee timely delivery on Android devices. Calendar events work well on mobile. - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • WebAssembly Playground
    I bet it is used in a lot of ways people don't notice. In my site[1] I use wasm to run an ancient piece of code called SGP4, but it's totally invisible to the user. Someone actually ported SGP4 to JavaScript but it's slower and doesn't perfectly match the original, so it's great to have the option to run the real C version (actually the original is Fortran but the C port is the standard these days).

  • Starlink Space Laser throughput details published
    I live 10 miles from Boston and I've seen them a whole bunch. I've used https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/?special=starlink. - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • Starlink Space Laser throughput details published
    Https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/ Put in your location and it will tell you when and where to look at the sky to see one. Works great for me and hopefully it will work for you. - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • WTH happened at 03:10 this morning?
    Starlink Go to this site. It will tell you all the satelites in your area and what time they will pass over you. It will also tell you how many starlink satts will be in the 'train' . Most I have seen was 54 travelling east west and 52 travelling north south. And passed in the middle. That would have totally freaked out a few people. Https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/.

  • Starlink Just Flew Over
    Great website that lets you know when it’s possible to see starlink in your area https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: 7 months ago
  • The ISS will fly right over Houston tonight, visible from 6:17 PM until 6:23, appearing in the NNW sky - Check it out!
    Here's a simulation video from the very helpful and interesting web site "See A Satellite Tonight". Source: 7 months ago
  • I think I just saw Starlink?
    The best thing I ever saw was in 2019, saw the ISS go overhead as predicted by the internet (https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/ I assume), but there was a much dimmer point just underneath it, travelling at the exact same speed. Turns out that was a Dragon cargo which had recently departed. Source: 11 months ago
  • Satellites or UFO's? I'm seeing a lot more of something.
    I have been sitting under clear skies and low light pollution for a couple of nights now and keep seeing satellites. I use a web page (https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/) that tells me what they are (Long March, Titan, ISS, etc.) but I am seeing more than those. Last night alone I saw two satellites that the web site identified. But there were four more last night that were not identified on the web site. I... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Seen last evening in CT
    Maybe check the ISS paths for your location & time, on sites like: https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Just watched the ISS pass overhead - awesome sight
    This is the site to bookmark: https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Caught from Pikesville at 9:30p, 5/4/23. I guess it’s a Starlink thing. Haven’t seen before, do not want.
    You can see where to view satellites here. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Starlink Flyovers Tonight
    This website is a good place to keep track: https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Satellites?
    I use this: Https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: over 1 year ago
  • mysterious flying object, anyone seen anything like it. looked like a flying train. as in a ton of windows with lights. but no other identifying features, no blinking lights. no cutouts where wings could have been. what could it be?
    I've yet to see a proper train. Use this link, update your location and it will show you exactly where to look in the sky for the next ones. See satellites in the night sky, no telescope required. https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Rocket launch on East Coast will be visible more than 600 miles inland, NASA says
    If you like this kind of stuff you should follow this app. Monday at 20:02 you might be able to see 42x star link satellite. You can change the address to your place and it tells you which way to look. Https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Who are those two?
    Not the other commenter but if you check in on the planets even once a week or less you can keep pretty solid track of where they all are. Also by doing that you’ll learn pretty quickly how to identify each just by it’s position, brightness. And color. Also if the sky is clear the 20-30m after sunset or before is prime satellite spotting time, a great place to find and visualize airings is... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Starlink over Minneapolis 6:48-6:53pm
    Sort of, they're most noticeable right after they've been launched and while they are still low and are slowly spreading apart before getting into their slots and oriented themselves to reduce their glare. And not every launch puts them at a latitude where we'd spot them. But there are so many gorram launches you probably won't need to wait long before another will start to be good viewing. This website helps you... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Pulled over on the side of the highway to get this video of starlink satellites passing over northeast Ohio.
    If you want to see them for yourself: https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Moving west to east, over LaGrange. Never seen anything like it. Video taken 6:39pm. Anyone else seeing this?
    Yes, starlink. want to know when satellites are coming? this is pretty cool. see a satellite tonight. note you can go back in time to verify a prior sighting. Source: over 1 year ago
  • where can i see Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) tonight?
    Forgive me, I don't know if this answers your question (prolly not), but James Darpinian's "See A Satellite Tonight" site will help you find lots of other (closer) celestial objects: https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/ It's a very neat site.
