Enhanced Satellite Tracking in real time
Here is a very cool and new site in where you can follow along with a satellite in real time. Some of the faster-lower orbit ones really zoom across the face of the Earth...and you can track them as they zoom overhead on your screen! It is catagorized quite well interms of most popular, brightest, weather, military etc...

It is indeed a great sat site and I have followed on screen various satellites predicted to go overhead from the site in real time. If you or others make use of it, let me know and we'll put it up here.
Make sure you utilize all the other sat locator resources/sites listed in the "Earth Satellite" section.
