Retired Satellites

  • Anonymous - 2013-05-01

    I´m getting interested in get photos of the satellites passing by the sun and the moon. To do that, I created an User and configure CalSky to inform me by mail.
    Today I received the info of a satellite named Intelsat 503.
    Then, I was trying to see the passing by trough Stellarium, but this satellit wasn´t on it.

    I searched in google, and find out that this satellite was retired.

    I´ve looked too in this link, under Intelsat, but it wasn´t there.

    Could you tell me if there is a script or something to update the info of retired satellites?

    I take this opportunity to thanks for this excellent program.

    (Sorry my bad english)

    Stellarium got the trace for retired satellites?

    TLE is valid for very short period and accuracy of position out of this range is very bad.

    Just update TLE via Satellites plugin.
