Now, I don’t know if you guys have heard but there is a 6-ton dead satellite that is currently hurtling towards Earth and will make contact sometime tonight or over the weekend. In effort to keep our readers safe from a horribly (funny) demise, I thought I’d bring to your attention an app currently available exclusively to Android users that allows you to monitor satellites in our Earth’s orbit (even the falling ones).

Using augmented reality the Satellite AR app allow you to simply point your device into the air and take a look around at all the satellites you never knew were there. Waiting. Watching. Listening. The developers have even added the temporary ability to monitor the trajectory of that bus-sized Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite that could be heading towards your home right now. It’s too bad iOS users will be caught unawares.
