AO-71

Where can I get info on passes of AO-71 for my QTH? No one seems to have anything on this newest CubeSat.

Clint:  The site is really no help, no info on its orbit or passes over the U.S. for the current date.  It or Amsat do not even list it as AO-71, only way I found out was on QRZ. Thanks for your reply.

Then you will need its "formal" name and search for it in SpaceTrack ... Until Celestron or AMSAT-NA picks it up.

I thought the home site had Keplerian data for it ...

No one knows which TLE belongs to which CubeSat ... One of the cubesats in the first cluster (Object F+G) is E1P-U2. Maybe Object G, thinks Mike DK3WN.

RAX-2 is Object E.

And - one of those in the last cluster (B/C/D) is AubieSat. The problem is that AubieSat-1 is very weak and only active in eclipses (maybe due to a temperature issue)

Forrest - more reports that AubieSat-1 is probably #F have been received ...
