Yes, CelesTrak detected the incorrect International Designator for the Progress launch when the TLEs were first released. We corrected that in the SATCAT, reported it to 18 SPCS and Space Track, but do NOT change the TLE data. I chose not to report the issue on Twitter and elsewhere. But so you know, we do regularly check for and correct irregularities like these and report them for correction. Feel free to let me know if you ever have any questions on things like this or notice something that may have slipped my attention.  - TS

Spacetrack was using incorrect IDs. Until yesterday, all element sets relating to Soyuz MS-16 were for 2020-025xx.

Someone forgot to allow space for Starlink, the real 2020-025.

´╗┐ Just a typo at the aerospace info.
The int id is 2020-026B, as marco reported.

My question is about a detail about the code of the object:  2020-026B or 2020-025B
The prediction of<> talks about 2020-025B (45596) , but Marco reports about 2020-026B
The database at CELESTRAK ( )
Says that 45596 is  2020-026B , so I wonder if there is a typo in the report at that says 2020-025B. Also here:
So 2020-026B or 2020-025B .... are they the same? Am i missing something?
Thanks in advance
