Lets track some satellites!

Today I surfed through iGoogle gadgets and found one interesting fancy one - Satellite Tracking, built using Google Maps. You can watch and locate 5 satellites in real time (for example Hubble and ISS).

But moving on to the homepage of this gadget, it`s possible to track a movement of more than 100 satellites. So why should any normal person keep its eye on satellites?
The answer is simple and revealed by a category named The Brightest - it is useful for persons watching the sky with telescopes from their window or garden.

Anyway, take a break and have time to watch the sky, stars and satellites!
