HeavenSat and Satellite Tracker are the programs I use to track satellites and predict Iridium flares.

The Iridium satellite constellation is a large group of satellites used to provide voice and data coverage to satellite phones, pagers and integrated transceivers over the entire Earth's surface.

ISS - International Space Station

The International Space Station (ISS) is an internationally developed research facility in low Earth orbit.

   

TRMM

The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) is a joint space mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) designed to monitor and study tropical rainfall. (Notice how faint it is until it reflects sunlight and flares slighty.)
