Use the calendar widget to set the date and time in UTC that you are interested in. The initial time defaults to the current time.
Use the second dropdown box to select the satellite you want to find. Also, you can search for it using the live search box at the top of the dropdown.
Choose which hemisphere you want to follow a satellite in. Unfortunately, we currently can only support following satellites in either the northern or southern hemisphere and not both simultaneously. When moving through time and the satellite you are following disappears (along with new sections of the trace), then that means that it has left the hemisphere you are viewing or is in the buffer range of latitude (usually ±20° latitude - we don't plot those points).
The currently available position information in the Satellite Finder are outlined in the table below.
