FW: Accessing Space-Track TLEs.

Greetings all

 

Thank you to those who contacted me about this problem yesterday.   The
problem was still in place the last time that I checked yesterday, around
18:00 UT.

 

This morning there was a message from Space-Track on my Facebook account to
say that they have fixed the problem.   I have already been on the
Space-Track site and the 2019 108 file is now there and there is also the
new 109 file.   So both are now safely downloaded, along with the file for
the latest data for all objects, and my software is currently chugging
through the processes for archiving everything and producing some specific
"files of interest" (to me, anyway!).

 

Fingers crossed that the problem will not recur.   It is the first time that
I have had it since the Space-Track site opened in 2005.   And in August
next year it will be 40 years since I started to get the full mailings of
paper TLEs from NASA GSFC's Orbit Information Group.

This morning a problem seems to have arisen when accessing the daily TLE
files on Space-Track.

 

When I try to open 2019 108 (today's new file) in a new tab I get the error
message

 


Uh Oh. Something Has Gone Horribly, Horribly Wrong!

As an experiment I tried yesterday's new 2019 107 file while I accessed
without any problem yesterday morning (UT) but I am now getting the same
error message for that as well.

 

I have e-mailed the System Administrator, so let's see what happens.
