FOR those who have been looking to the skies over the past weeks to see satellites and space station passes, Halton Borough Council has issued up some advice.

For people gazing at the stars and wondering what they are looking at there are many apps for phones.

For all the apps and satellite trackers you will need to have you GPS turned on so they can predict when and what you will see.

PressReader allows you to view the latest daily newspapers, monthly magazines and foreign press and magazines all for free. You can also access Borrowbox (online books) E readers (Audio Books) and things such as online driving test theory practice pages and much more local history and advice.

For armchair star gazers and active ones you can get the BBC Sky at Night and Space Magazines free every month from the council's library app PressReader.

These may also inspire you to check out the space age Halton Borough Council Library service facilities available online.

Apps for both Apple and Android smart phones include ISS Spotter. Type in Space Station tracker into the app store search bar and see what comes up.
