Post Satellite Graveyard Orbit   Posted on: Thu Jun 02, 2011 8:28 am
I am new to this forum so I want to first apologize in advance, if this post is in the wrong section.

Does anyone have links or sources on data of satellites that are currently in Graveyard Orbit? or, essentially, satellites that have been used and replaced?

I think it would be real cool to be able to track down and stores this information.

The Orbital Debris datasets would have these, I don't know where you can find them though. NASA probably has one, as should NORAD and maybe the FAA. I don't think it would be classified as anyone launching and running a satellite needs to have access to this data. It might not be free though.

Perhaps Heavens-Above has such a list?

You can get the elements from Space-Track by signing up for a free account. You then run them in GPredict or similar software.

If you aren't allowed access to the Space-Track TLE files, there are open sources for smaller sets, as well as a set from SeeSat of classified birds.
