I've just begun exploring the mysteries and wonders of the User Interface to 
"SatTrack", but I noticed that there's a site on the Web, provided by Georgia 
State, which provides detailed satellite pass information for any entered 
geographic location and time range. In fact, the output from this looks 
suspiciously like (what little I've managed to produce) from SatTrack.

The URL for this free service is:

How accurate and up to date are the elements for this site, and how reliable is 
it for sighting predictions? If it's reasonably worthwhile, it would be (IMHO) a 
quantum leap forward in helping people to plan satellite observations!

Thanks in advance,
