Updates (latest first)

* 26th April 2024 - updated the conjunctions page today. Some more site updates are in the pipeline.

* 9th December - All the recent altitude history graphs and batching of satellites per launch were buggered up due to errors in automated data retrieval -- this was untangled and now the data looks ok again and hopefully will stay that way.

* 30th June - Automation of tweeting for following events: additional launches scheduled, additional catalogued satellites from recent launches, close conjunctions to ISS or CSS

* 8th June - Added launches pages for starlink launches which lead to individual orbit insertion graphs.

* 26th April - the three approximate Italian ground station locations have been added. Without online copies of any official paperwork and approvals the lat/long or curtent operational status is uncertain

* 19th April - not a lot to report. During a pause in starlink launches, quite a number of re-entries are happening. Judging by misdirected emails a large number of customers are waiting in limbo with little to no information from Starlink on their order progress. If you follow our twitter, the monday movie is getting tweaked slightly.

* 17th March - Now on google play store: Get it on Google Play

* 2022 Jan/Mar - All 2022 launches added as they became available. App altered so wifi-only ipads can load it. Android app in google play store waiting approval. Searching by NORAD now selects the satellite instead of just moving the globe. Altitudes are now continuously shown instead of changing once every two minutes.

* 30th December - ISS and CSS added to globe. Added re-entry predictions from space-track to globe. These appear as flashing red/yellow squares if there are any active. Zoom in for details.

* 22th December - Still no 18th December starlink launch satellites available for tracking. Some minor bug-fixes with new search option. Can search Launches now by typing a date or a launch #. Last launch being tracked is #32, #33 has no tracking yet

* 2th December - where is Oneweb? It has not vanished. In Settings, in Filter, select Oneewb (or GPS, or Starlink)

* 25th November - sorry for the fairly brief recent outages and issues relating to support for an up-coming App. They're back under control now

* 21st November - added the new batch from the last launch

* 16th November - clean up of top bar now all the extra functions are in "..."

* 14th November - Mercator projection is finally not annoyingly broken. Including pan and zoom and touch zoom

* 12th November - fixed bug for filtering by launches. You can now enter either launch numbers eg 1,2,3,5 or a range for example 10-15

* 6th November - In Settings > Home , for the purposes of guessing at line of sight reception, you can specify whether the terminal faces north, south or directly up. If it faces directly up then anything over 45 degrees above the horizon is considered visible. As per North or South, this is obviously a wild approximation.

* 4th November - added view density of starlink satellites in an area, option is in Settings.. Display.. Intensity


* 27th October - optimisations for less cpu. Feedback functions are growing in bottom right of screen. Added conjunctions analysis

* 19th October - customer coverage estimate based on ground station list is added. Turn off in settings

* 9th October - bug fixes especially on mobile. Now you can bookmark an object for example a direct link to view Norad 47914. Momentum.

* 29th September - added two more starlink batches, one tiny and one normal, and a new oneweb batch

* 7th September - southern hemisphere home - sat visibility flipped to looking south by default

* 14th June - added two more launches

* 21st May - added two more launches, fixed bug where ground stations were not being added as they are found, (see Europe for new ground stations), show starlink names with sufficient zoom. Added a close X to altitude history window.

* 6th May - updated the How To Use section below and reformatted the preferences modal slightly

* 16th April - added March 25th oneweb launch, and starlink launch 25 (24 officially)

How to use

Most preferences can be set (persistently stored) using the cog (settings) link at the top. You can increase performance by turning off rings, turning off ground station dots and filtering for active satellites.

Preferences can filter by launch number or numbers. Enter the list of launches with commas for example 24,25 would display only the satellites from that launch

Day/Night refers to coloring the satellites according to whether they are over land after sunset or after sunrise

Rings refers to very approximate area of usability. Of course the actual direction the reception dish determins actual visibility

Enter your home address in lat/long form (note the numbers must be negative f you need to enter West or South numbers) to enable default display of your immediate satellites and view count

Mouse: click hold and drag to move globe, zoom in with scroll wheel or two finger touch pad move. Zoom for more detail.

Mobile: use normal touch operations to move and zoom/unzoom globe

The ".." Download Data link downloads accumulated data on visibility of satellites second by second. Click it to download the file for your own amusement and processing (for example to determine your own metric on visibility over a period)

Map is live from latest observational data from space track dot org.

You can click satellites, or click ground stations for further information
