Realtime Satellite Data on Google Earth...

When I was a kid in the '60s, trying to find the position of a satellite meant hours of detective work in the library, and only for those few satellites whose ephemeri (positions) were made publicly available.  Here's a web page that gives you a Google Earth view with the positions of thousands of satellites layered upon it, updated every 30 seconds.  At right is what it looked like a few minutes ago in my neck of the woods.  Awesome!
