# Notifier about visible ISS passes and/or Iridium flares for Ubuntu PC

I am trying to find application that would be capable of notifying me about visible ISS pases for specified location and/or visible Iridium flares for specified location.

This software must be capable of running on Ubuntu.

I strongly prefer active open-source projects.

I know that there are multiple mobile apps but I want something that may run on Linux PC.

To avoid "this is subjective" - I will be happy about any software fulfilling this requirements and criteria are not subjective.

• Comment only as I don't have any precise information - there is "ISS Above" which is Linux. It's Raspberry Pi-specific software I believe, but if you can get the source code it might be worth having a look at. – Andy Mar 8 '16 at 13:15
• @Andy - it seems to be 148$for software on Raspberry Pi issabove.com/what-is-it or source-code only for 30$ issabove.com/downloads/iss-above-hd-for-pi-2 – reducing activity Mar 8 '16 at 14:29
• Ah that's a pity (I thought it was open source). I just noticed the Space Exploration stackexchange has a few questions about sat tracking (though at least some are for Windows). For example: space.stackexchange.com/questions/2355/… – Andy Mar 8 '16 at 14:54
