Summary0003364: consider upgrading and/or licensing satellite tracking library
Description
The Satellite Tracker application uses a pretty old version of a third-party library which comes from http://www.zeptomoby.com/satellites/

I don't know if we have a license for this library, so I don't know which edition (Public, Standard, or Professional) we have. It looks to me like our snapshot of that code came from 2003 or so. The Public edition was last updated in June of 2017, according to the website.

We should be usre that we're in compliance with the terms of the library's license whatever we do. We might consider upgrading to a more capable version of the library, if it adds features that improve the product. (See Mantis 3363 -- we should research it a bit, but I think the Professional version supports the closed-form computation we'd like to see.)
