Stationary Satellites & Rotating Stars.. In Full Colors

NASA had an online application that shows the hundreds of Satellites parked in space stationary in a big circle.
It was called "J-Track 3-D". It is now just a dead link on NASA's website !!
"J-Track 3-D : a plot in 3-dimensions showing the position of over 900 satellites"


Internet Archive has the original page & Google Images cached some of its pictures..

Nice pictures of the Stellar Sphere rotating Earth daily. You can take a picture like this using a simple camera that shoots every 40 minutes or something.
