Database download

Hi, I’m new here, I have a project but I need to have the archives of every satelite to see when they died.
So if anyone could help me with a link or something.

Hey @tom !

By “archives of every satellite” what exactly do you mean? We do have a multitude of projects with all sorts of data. Can you be a bit more specific? Cheers!

Also it would be great to know what is the project you are working on :slight_smile:



For a school project I want to see, with a program, if the death of the cubesats are linked to the solar wind.
So I would like have an access to a data file with all the cubesat’s death and their date.

(I’m not english sorry if you don’t understand everything)

There are no data we host that can directly provide what you want, since satellite malfunction or cease of operations can only be inferred by analysis of a combination of things (which we host) like observations from ground stations, decoded telemetry data etc.

I believe Polaris project (Machine Learning on satellite telemetry SatNOGS hosts) might be closer to what you are looking for. Let us know!


Okay I will look for that.

Thanks a lot @pierros !

I have a copy of some data from December, 2019 SatNOGS Observations that you can possibly use for samples. It may be easier/nicer to pull down instead of hitting API, if you just want sample data to work with. It is located here:

It has 178,092 observations. Note, each observation is a directory with an observation ID, so the download/ directory has 178,092 subdirectories (!). The subdirectories have a json file of the observation pulled from, a waterfall .png if available, and an .ogg audio file from, if available. Here is the range:

You can more easily pull the data using rsync at this URL:


Note: this will take ~5 minutes to begin to download. Total archive size is around a terabyte.

Happy hacking,
