DESCRIPTION

       A satellite tracking program.  Allows for selection of a database
       that can contain up to 1000 satellites.  Tracks satellites on a
       graphics display of the world.  All graphics are IFF compatible
       allowing for loading of display to standard painting program.
       SatTrack allows for input of satellite data using either standard
       data format or by simple user input.  Satellite database files 
       are included, also information for obtaining database updates from
       public domain and government locations.   All operations use 
       standard windows and menus.  SatTrack has a simulation mode that 
       allows for predictions in the future.  Operates on Workbench 1.3,
       2.X and 3.X.  This is version 4.1. SatTrack is keyware, see the 
       registration file for more information.  SatTrack Demo is fully 
       operational until the expiration time is reached.

NEW FEATURES
	
       New for SatTrack 4.1
       Addition of support for various sized screens.  This allows for
       better support of PAL users and users with extended graphics
       cards.  
 
       Also included is Sun tracking which allows for calculation of 
       sun position.  Sun position is required to allow SatTrack to
       calculate the times when a particular satellite, shuttle or MIR
       is "in the sun" and you are not.  This determination allows the
       SatTrack user to predict when a space object is visible.

       Overhead view is a map of the sky from your location.   It is
       representative of where the satellite will travel within your
       view.   The display represents a circle.  The center of the
       circle is "up".  The outside circumference of the circle is
       your "horizon".  Another circle 1/2 the size of the other circle
       with the same center is the 45degree azimuth from your location.
