Orbitron Satellite tracking system for radio amteur and observing puposes It's also used by weather professionals, satellite communication users, astronomers, UFO hobbyist and even astrologers. Application shows the positions of satellites at any given moment (in real or simulated time). It's FREE (Cardware) and it's probably one of the easiest and most powerful satellite trackers, according to opinions of thousands of users from all over the world.
J-Track from NASA.
The tracking system calculates an approximate location for a list of satellites.

Les Hamilton, UK has launched a new Satellite tracking program called Footprint.
Footprint is program which displays the positions of an orbiting satellite and its footprint on a map of the Earth, updating its position and footprint every minute.
The program can also provide reference tables of relevant ephemeris, A.O.S. and keplerian element data.
The program reads satellites' orbital elements from keplerian element files in standard NASA 2-line format, specifically filtering out only those satellites belonging to the following classes :
NOAA, USA; Meteor Okean and Resurs, Russia; Sich, Ukraine.
Download your copy of Footprint from Les HamiltonWeather Satellite Image Pages, free software and using WXSat.
