I suggest you ...

Could you plot the satellite paths onto the Google Sky application?

If the Google Sky application is open enough, do you think you could plot the satellite paths onto it? Seems like it should be possible if you know where they are, and its likely better to plot a thin dotted line than to try and constantly update the exact position of the satellite. This would be absolutely awesome and I think a lot of people would go for it then, as it would be much more useful than basic text locations.

From what I understand they just used the Maps API to get it going.

Probably this could help, but it may be specific to google earth, I don't think it is though.
