The best real-time tracking software I have seen is 'Satcom 3.2' from Stefan
Bierfreund.  It is  running under DOS and it can track 14 satellites
simultaniously.  There is a possibility to trace them around the globe or on
a chart.  There is also a real-time tracking possibility with a star
background.(very realistic and with a zoom function !)

Satcom 3.2 is already several years old and I don't know if there have been
updates ever since.  I don't even know if it is available for the public.
There was a demonstration of it during a meeting of the BWGS many years ago.
