You can use PREDICT for this very purpose! You can look days and months ahead to see when a satellite in in eclipse, how much illumination it should receive, etc. It's really slick.
Pick your OS, download, read a bit, and have at it.
Thanks to Bruce WB9ANQ for directing me to this software just a few days ago and to John KD2BD for a great program!
