I'm Swaminathan Balaraman from INDIA, I'm doing my Research in Spacecraft Attitude Dynamics and Control and our university is building a experimental satellite to be launched in polar orbit for that i tried your software to simulate the orbit environment like eclipse and ground tracks.

Well! i need some documentation in using your software like can i predict about visibilities, eclipse period, sun movement. etc., there can be a documentation to change the TLE data. Now manually i edit some of the existing satellite data to view ourself. I'm exploring the net to understand more about TLE data. Now i would like to create a sample TLE data for my satellite


Inclination: 97degrees
Altitude: 800km
Eccentricity: 0.001
Semi major axis: 7178000m

Now i have to create a sample TLE data to simulate the ground track of my satellite

can you help me,

Thanks in advance

Orbitron does function well under Vista. I have been running under Vista for some time now with no issues.

Hi, Sebastian and all...

Thanks, dear Sebastian, for your program ! My post card is coming to you...

I want to let know i write a little program for interfacing Orbitron and a FT-897D for satellite traffic. If interrested, E-Mail me !!!

Best regards.

Is there a way to show the tracks for more then one sat at a time?

I think many users needed this option - use local gorizont profile. this profile must convert to right radar map as line,lower this we can't see (receive) satellite.
sorry for my english

Thank you Sebastian. Once again I am using Orbitron, but this time it is operating under the Linux/Ubuntu operating system, using Wine. It s just great to have this program on the computer.
My post/qsl card is on the way also.
Happy hunting to all.... ..

About "lunar flares", I found the following pages:

It seems quite easy to observe with a telescope (magnitude around 7). I understand if it is not a priority for Orbitron.

I never observed such an Iridium Moon flash. However, offers predictions for Iridium daytime flashes.
They write: "Daytime flares for 7 days - see satellites in broad daylight!"
Maybe I'll try that :-)

Great program! I'm just coming home after watching Iridium 74 and 67.
I was wondering... any chance that you add the Moon as a source for possible Iridium flashes ?

I have loaded MyDEE, and have Orbitron select the WispDDE driver. Now I just want it to send out the Azm and Elv data at 2400 baud on Com 2. I will then programe a pic micro-controller to move the antenna for me.

I am just lost on how to send that data out at that rate on that com port

Cory, for talking to the ISS see this page:

How can I talk to the ISS?

hello Cory- the circle is the circle of visibility

that means, astronauts on the ISS can see the part of the earth within the circle and ground observers within the circle can see the ISS Space Station

I have a couple of questions. First, I am using Orbitron to track the ISS. The white circle around the ISS. What is this for? I am in Florida, and sometimes the circle covers Florida, Ga, and Al.
Also, I am a Ham radio operator. I want to try to see the ISS and also talk via 2 meter. Is there a way to determin when the chance of talking/working the ISS will be? Thanks so much!

If you need to find your latitude and longitude try this web site. It's a ham radio oriented site but that does not matter as it can give your location down to the second. It's based on Google Maps and so operates as such. Not all countries have detailed maps available but if you can find your location on the map function or on the satellite image then this page will give you your location. Just left click once and your coordinates will come up.

Downloaded Orbitron the other day and am using it successfully. Seems like a very easy program to use. I have successfully seen two flyovers of the space station/space shuttle in the last two days. Last night's flyover was with the shuttle trailing behind the station. What a beautiful sight. Thanks for the program.

After frustration of years of using another freeware tracking system,I finally thought I'd give Orbitron a try...Very happy with how smooth it runs and no hang ups...THANKS.

I dont know how many ISS and AO51 passes I may have been missing! Will like to try gettting it to work with FooTraCK rotor contol down the road..maybe some auto tuning for my FT857 too....73 Greg in Ontario. (QSL is on the way)

Czy jest w planach kompilacja Orbitrona na Windows Mobile ? Przydała by się wersja dla PDA można by go używać w terenie.

Dear Sebastian, great software! Thanks for your post in the news section (July 17, 2007).

If you are planning a new release of Orbitron, could you implement a star map, so we can see where ISS or other satellites are passing nearby stars? This would make visual observations much easier.

No problem, if it is not possible. Orbitron is the BEST satellite tracking software on the web!!!
