Re: Sun or not



So looks like InstantTrack is the software to use then.. I use Orbitron, but
seems to lack all the features that IT brings?

Thanks for your help..

InsantTrack just tells you.  In fact, if you enter an estimate of the 
size of the spacecraft, InstantTrack will give you an estimate of the 
brightness of the spacecraft (in units of magnitude, just like stars).

Some other tracking programs may do similar things.
