Notes

This plug-in relies on the system clock so for accurate results it should be synched with a timeserver, alo due to a floating point precision problem the satellite positions are not accurate in versions of World Wind less than 1.3.4. There also seems to be a problem for some international users due to a ./, issue, to fix this change your windows settings to US-English.
