    Thanks to Kevin and Paul for the URLs that lead to some satellite pictures.
    
    
    
    I am still pulling my hair out trying to accomplish what should be a simple 
    task. I wanted to find a central source that would provide in a nice clean 
    format (that kids could read) providing interesting details like the size of 
    the satellite and its inclination and so on (be great if a profile of its 
    orbit was included!). I'm looking for crafts that fit various use categories 
    and orbit types etc. Like for instance here are some satellites I found here 
    http://science.nasa.gov/realtime/jtrack/eob.html
    
    
    
    *Earth Observation: LANDSAT 7 and CLOUSAT
    
    *Astronomy: FUSE and SWAS
    
    *Amateur: XO-53 and OPAL
    
    *Weather: NOAA 12 and TOPEX
    
    *Digital Radio: SIRIUS-1 and AFRISTAR
    
    
    
    I may have missed the obvious at the NASA site. I did however click on help 
    and all I got was the sound my computer makes when a pop up is blocked! I'm 
    about to chose one satellite, like the Hubble, and leave it at that.
    
    
    
    Thanks in advance.
