<< I recommend heading over to John Walker's pages at http://www.fourmilab.ch
and downloading HomePlanet which includes an Earth map showing night and day, multiple viewing locations, a hell of a lot of satellites, an orrery, a sky-view, an horizon view, astronomical information, an object catalogue with thousands of objects... oh, and a cuckoo clock.
And it's free. What a very nice man.
Ya, thats a cool program, but I'm looking for something that describes each satelite and what it does, it's purpose and possibilities, and perhaps even better a site that has information on sattelites that isnt public.
