    ok, yeah, you want simulated time... as someone else already mentioned, i think 
    the only way currently is to stop time and then use the slider to advance it... 
    then you are not limited to how long you have to watch but how much you move the 
    slider... something like that, anyway...
    personally, this is one of the reasons why i have several satellite tracking 
    programs that offer astronomical views of the sky... i can speed up time if i 
    like or i can simply advance it at my pace... some are better than others and 
    the ones with primary sky viewing are not as good for satellite watching but 
    they are getting better... slowly but better :)
