    Hello!
    
    I am using predict (version 2.2.3) and the gsat for tracking the STS
    116 mission. I am doing this using my P3 PC running Slackware Linux
    11.
    
    I fed the TLEs published on Heavens-Above site to my predict program.
    Predict program runs in server mode and I am using gsat to plot that
    data.
    
    I am seeing a different between the positions of shuttle at a given
    moment by gsat and Heavens-Above site. Additionally, I confirm that
    the data calculated by the predict package are correct - I compared
    them with H-A data. The H-A ground track and NASA TV ground track are
    also in perfect sync.
    
    Any idea why the gsat is goofing up with the plot?
    
    Thanks in advance!
    Atul.
