The recent discussions on close encounters between orbiting objects
reminded me of a very good program which allows one to see up to 300
objects orbiting in real time or fast time, with footprints and lines
connected between earth and object showing its vertical position.
I cannot remember where I downloaded it from, but it is called
pctrk311.zip Having dug it out again I put HST and Cosmos 1666 to work
and watched the orbital display and near misses in fast time. Quite a
sight.
