    try with the advanced search of satflare.com. You can search for all the
    objects up in your sky in real time or at a given time. For example, if
    you want to search all the objects in real time with at least 10 degrees of
    elevation and brighter than magnitude 5, run this link:
    (copy the whole link)
    if you want to check for a specified time add to the link the time (UTC). For 
    example for 03:02 UTC:
    After the list is shown, click on the button "Track All These Objects" to see 
    the objects in3D around the
    Earth and on the sky chart.
    Best regards,
