Status satellites?

What is the “status” column, and why I have “unknow?”

The TLE format specifies a flag that can be used for indicating the status of a satellite. You have unknown in it because that is what the TLE file specifies. I have never seen any other status in a TLE file, so it is practically useless.

Thank you Alex for information.

Actually, it looks like NOAA 15, 18, and 19 have statuses in their data :slight_smile:

Yes, I can see backup/statut. It is dommage that this parameters is not updated currently.
