    A program called satellite tool kit can do that.

    Here is an example of the output
    
          Time (UTCG)         FromAngularRate (deg/sec)

    Viewed the ISS on 2/2/02 . I caught a quick view with an 8 inch reflector
    with a Dobsonian mount at 18.19.07   2 degree above Jupiter. Using a 40mm
    eyepiece I have a 1.4 degree (86 arcminute) field of view. Is there a
    program or formula I could use to compute the degrees per second travel of
    any satellite and how it varies with its elevation above the horizon and
    altitude?
