View all satellites using Google Earth

Using Google Earth you can see the real-time position of 13,000 satellites around the Earth.

The positions of the satellites are automatically updated every 30 seconds and if you click on a satellite, additional information is displayed.

To view this you need to download and install Google Earth from
http://earth.google.co.uk/download-earth.html

Next download the Satellite Database and open with Google Earth

I had read at the Austrialian IPS site that a good solar cycle might take care of much of the spent bodies and stages. I don't see how these things don't end up hitting each other.

How do you turn off the satellite view? Or filter it to get rid of the "junk" - or pick which satellites you actually want to see?:confused:
