Re: BREAKING: North Korean Satellite Tumbling Out of Control
now passing to the east of the northern most islands of Japan at an altitude of 319 miles which continues to decrease
 Quoting: godzilla85


It should be descending down to 313 miles and then it will begin gaining altitude back up to its apogee at 365 miles.

If it dips below 300 miles then either something is wrong with the tracking info/site, or it is being de-orbited.

I'm not well versed in orbits and how they function as far as satellites remaining in orbit...does their altitude fluctuate as they rotate in their orbits around earth?
 Quoting: godzilla85


Yes, part of getting into orbit you end up with one end higher than the other. Then once at the highest point (apogee), you burn along the prograde (the direction your headed) and that in turn brings up the altitude of your lowest point (perigee).

You use these maneuvers to "circularize" to the height you want with it even on both sides.

We don't know what the flight profile of this satellite was, maybe this was the intended orbit, or maybe the satellite malfunctioned before it had a chance to circularize its orbit better.
 Quoting: CharlieMurphy


Thanks @CharlieMurphy

Good input, appreciate it!

For a "tumbling out of control" satellite, it sure does appear to be A-Okay.
 Quoting: 2012Portal


No Problem.

If it is "tumbling out of control", it probably means that it is spinning around in space not able to orient itself in a proper direction. With no air in space you can spin and flip and roll around all you want and it won't effect the direction your heading.

What it will effect is being able to orient communication dish's, camera's, sensors, and most importantly solar panels. Unless this thing is an EMP satellite it is space junk if they can't get their rotation controls working.

I doubt it is an EMP though, with their shitty track record of launching things I would not put a valuable nuke as the payload.
 Quoting: CharlieMurphy



Wow, you nailed it!

It is now ascending again!

Good work!

Re: BREAKING: North Korean Satellite Tumbling Out of Control
Heres an odd thought... every time it rotates it comes closer to places like North and South America. Won't it eventually go over every place on the earth at least once? If it did have a target and this wasn't a weather sat, could they be waiting until their target is within range to drop whatever is needed to be dropped back into orbit and hope no one notices until it is too late?

Ok here's the .gif I made


Time frame is 5:28pm EST to 6:20pm EST almost an hour

I stopped the .gif right as it starts increasing in altitude


Its pretty interesting to watch the ground it covers in the frame of time anyways... not a total waste :)

Re: BREAKING: North Korean Satellite Tumbling Out of Control
Yea it has now passed perigee and is climbing to apogee.

It is in a very highly inclined orbit, meaning it goes from North to South and South to North over the poles. This type of orbit allows you to observe every part of the Earth as it rotates underneath the satellite.

This was no weather satellite...

It was intended as a spy satellite, hopefully it really did malfunction and is useless now.
