I have (finally) gotten round to adding height.
If you are already using the Locator then you will be informed next time you use it. Otherwise get the updated KMZ here.

oh, nice little tool!

for all you out there, interested in that stuff, i found a nice little program called "Orbitron". you can download it HERE (http://www.stoff.pl/) .
it's a pretty cool programm, that shows you where on earth it's dark, and where light is, it shows you many satellites and a lot of crazy stuff more.

but since i have GE i don't use it any more.

just check it out ;)
