But of course.  It's all about the future.  I have never understood those 
programs that display a groundtrack by leaving dots where the satellite has 
been as if they forgot to clean up the display.

By the way, you can also type a digit before the "G", and IT will try to 
display groundtrack for that number of orbits.  This allows you to see how 
the groundtrack evolves from orbit to orbit.
