FYI - Java-based orbit calculator on NASA web site



NASA has a Java orbit calculator and sky-map/track display at
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/index.html

It also takes into account various sun angles and will tell you when a
satellite might actually be visible. It has built-in, periodically updated
Keps for a variety of objects (including ISS), and also supports direct
entry of other Keps in various formats (eg 2-line format). Extensive help
and a faq on the java app are also available.

Enjoy!
