Useful, if you use it right One big gotcha before you plan your next satellite hunt-- you must update Keplerians manually! If you use out-of-date Keplerian information, you might find yourself combing the skies for a satellite that doesn't exist. It'd also be great to set auto-update for Keplerians and to be able to sync with the calendar app in my phone. I'd be happy to pitch in if I just had a copy of the source code!
