Increase Notification Alert Times From 3 to 20 Minutes

I would like to increase the alert times on Sky Safari 5 Plus version 5.4.10 on iOS 11.0.2 from 3 minutes to something longer.  For example, I get a notification that an Iridium flare is happening in 3 minutes.  This isn't enough time for me to put down what I'm doing, go outside, orient myself, and observe the flare.  If I could set up a different alert time, say 15 or 20 minutes ahead of time, I'd be more likely to see it and also round up my family members.  Is there a way to do this in the app?

    No, this is not currently possible.  I will consider making this configurable.  Thanks for the suggestion.

    I'd like to add my support to this request.  I also find that 3 mins is sometimes insufficient - especially when kids are involved!

    On a related note, I try to remember to start the app every day or two because I recall reading that notifications are only posted up to two days after the last invocation.  If this is indeed true, and if it is possible to increase this duration (to, say, 5 days) that would be great, too. I realize that some predictions made 5 days our may lose some accuracy.

    Definitely would like configurable notification times. I use 20 minutes with other software.
