    Try Satspy 4, available at
    If the large ephemeris data file for all satellites is loaded
    then Satspy will calculate the "within view" pass times for all of them.
    After the ephemeris data is opened into SATSPY, go to the top menu bar 
    in Satspy, click to "Sat Views", then "Viewing Ops".
    This will give you a nice chart format.  Click on each satellite you are
    interested in for more detail.
    There are also many other nice features to the program.
    Although the pass times of the ISS are calculated in Satspy, is an excellent web site when you know which satellite
    you want to observe.

    Hi all!
    I've a little question.
    Is there any program able to perform a prediction abt all the satellites, 
    visible or not, crossing over my location at a precise time instead of the 
    usual programs based on a defined satellite only?
    In other words:
    WHAT can i expect to see (in theory...) out of my window e.g. this evening 
    at 9.35 p.m.
                                                              instead of
    WHEN i'll see ISS passing over my head?
    (it's a little bit tricky for me to explain it in english....)
    tnx + rgds
