Real Time Satellite Tracking on Google Maps

Real Time Satellite Tracking
Wow! This website lets you load any satellite and track it live on Google Maps. Have a look at the screencast below to get an idea of what it looks like.


Real Time Satellite Tracking from Keir Clarke on Vimeo.

The site shows all satellites as seen in the sky above an elevation of 5°. Satellite debris is not displayed. The map also comes with a number of options, to see the route of the satellite as a line on the map, to view the satellite's footprint, or to view the satellite's name rather than an image.
