    Dear list,
    I am glad to announce that I started a new experimental service on my
    web site for online satellite tracking.
    The service allows users to track satellites, to predict their passes
    and flares completely online.
    It is possible to predict Iridium flares or see them either in realtime or in 
    simulated time. 
    The service is interactive and it allows the user to change the time to see 
    or past events.
    Flares are represented graphically, particularly, it is possible to see the 
    ground track, which can help the user to identify the best location 
    (flare centre) for the observation (theoretically even at street level).
    New functions are already planned and should be added soon.
    The service is optimized for Firefox and Chrome. The following links allow the 
    to track the ISS, the NanoSail-D and the Iridium Satellites, respectively:
    The service is still experimental! Your comments, suggestions and bug reports, 
    will be very precious!
    Best regards,
    Seesat-l mailing list
