Would anyone on the list have any suggestions on satellite prediction
software for Macintosh computers? I also run Windows 95 and Dos
applications using a PC emulation program wich works well on Cad
programs and the like, but I am just kind of lame manipulating Windows
stuff, so a native Mac application would be easier.

I would love to be able to make use of the elsets that are so generously
provided by other subscribers, but I don't know how to interpret the
information provided into observation predictions.
Text-only time and location information output would be fine, I do not
need graphic printouts of passes, etc.

I check the GSOC site almost every night, but the limiting magnitude of
4.5 means A LOT of satellites are not listed. Almost every night I see
one or two orbiting objects that are NOT on my list... and wonder what
they are.

Also, I am curious if there are any other visual satellite observers in
my area who would like to compare notes, etc.?

Thanks in advance if anyone has any suggestions.
