More Satellite Tracking

In reference to my earlier post on satellite tracking, Sean Benison, a graduate student at NCGIA, showed me NASA's web satellite tracking tools. Several data delivery and visualization options are available. Their J-Track-3D display tracks satellites in real time with up to a 0.25 second refresh rate.

I've attached a screenshot. As a thumbnail, the satellites are not visible, so click the image to get a full screenshot.
