NASA predicts different TLEs for the ISS each day (several times each day if there is a docking maneuver). This program captures all of them (around 12) and renames each as "ISS month/day HH:MM". The TLEs are saved to the current directory as ISS.txt which can be imported to Autostar via the Meade ASU program. To get the most accurate satellite tracking, select the TLE closest to the current day & time. To run the program, you need Java Runtime v1.3.1 which is available from this site: http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/1.3.1/jre/ To run the program, just type java GetISS
from the command line. For example, I will run java GetISS 10 here in Melbourne. If no is specified, the date & time will be GMT. regards, Carmelo Porciuncula
