Orbitron: Tracking Satellites Online

Orbitron is a small yet powerful program that allows one to view locations of satellites and even the International Space Station. The program is aiding Catholicgauze in finally finding out which satellite buzzes over home base at night. Combine this with Stellarium and one has a pretty handy astronomy suite.

While Orbitron is fun, mad scientists be warned. The rumor that "Orbitron + Google Earth = Shooting Down Satellites" is false.
