      Hello,
    
    I mean graphs or other information which will tell something about 
    morning and evening
    visibilities of specific satellite when I am entering my coordinates. 
    Sometimes I would like to
    know when e.g. ISS will be visible here...let's say between period 
    October to February.
    
    Now I am making this information manually like this (unfortunately in 
    Finnish)
    http://www.ursa.fi/ursa/jaostot/tekokuut/obs/satschedule_2010.html
    (there blue means evening visibility and green is morning visibility)
    and I am using Heavens Above or Heavensat.
    
    But If I remember, Patrick Wils's Sat did this by drawing nice curves 
    for specific satellites.
    (maybe I am wrong). That's very old application.
    
    Best regards,
    
    Leo
