Re: High of Satellite to be in sunlight



Hi Chris,

Use InstantTrack

Satellite Covisibility -- InstantTrack shows you when satellites can see
other satellites (i.e., when crosslinks are possible), when satellites are
in eclipse (in the shadow of the Earth), etc. This display, of course,
updates in real-time, so you can see crosslinks appear and disappear.
