J-Track 3D Satellite Tracking
We hope you enjoy J-Track 3-D. It should appear in its own window and begin loading a database of hundreds of satellites. What you will see is a plot in 3-dimensions showing the position of these satellites. If you are unable to view then a JAVA upgrade could be necessary. Be sure to try the "Satellite" pull-down menu to choose which satellite you wish to view.
How to interact with JTrack-3D; it has its own menu items for View, Satellite, and Options:
|Ctrl + Click||Zoom Out|
|Click on Satellite||Show Trace|
|Click on List||Show Trace|
|Drag||Rotate in 3D|
This application serves as an educational tool and may not be completely accurate due to time discrepancies in the users' browser, updates to satellite orbital data, etc; it is not an official NASA satellite tracking tool. We are currently developing an improved satellite tracker using modern browser-based technology and hope to have this available in 2012. Stay tuned!
Additional Satellite Tracking can be found on NASA SkyWatch.
