    I've been using this site to confirm proximities with stars off of the
    default you get when selecting a specific vehicle. The progression
    through the site has changed, and you're not imagining it.
    
    I can still get to the sky charts, but it's only after clicking on a
    date, like in the rightmost column of the Visible Passes output here:
    
    http://www.heavens-above.com/passsummary.asp?lat=30.141&lng=-97.833&alt=202&loc=Manchaca&TZ=CST&satid=25017
    
    Up in the upper right of the same page is a link titled "Orbit." If you
    follow that, you should be able to get to the ground tracks:
    
    http://www.heavens-above.com/orbitdisplay.asp?lat=30.141&lng=-97.833&alt=202&loc=Manchaca&TZ=CST&satid=25017
    
    I would suspect this is an attempt to even out the amount of
    computational resources we in the public are consuming. It is the same
    number of mouse clicks for me, but the navigation change was a little
    jarring.
