Providing Space Information since 1999
zarya.info is a hobbyist website. Here you will find things that interest me..... current space events, the Soviet/Russian space programme, satellite tracking. You will also find frequency lists. They are spin-offs from my satellite tracking activities with which they go hand-in-hand. There are no mis-identifications, or erroneous entries, or gratuitous copies from elsewhere.
Notes on satellite tracking activities are added as they arise. The Diaries and "Go For Launch!" pages are updated as often as possible. Here are some other highlights from the site:
Launch from Xichang was December 1 at 17:30 UTC and Lunar arrival was December 6 at 09:53 UTC. Keep up to date with events in the zarya.info Chang'e 3 diary.
Talks and Lectures
If some of the material on the zarya.info website interests you enough, and you represent a local astronomy society, club or group in the UK, or even in Europe if a low-cost flight is available, then a talk or lecture can probably be arranged. Some ideas for topics can be found in this area of the site. Click the 'mail' icon towards the upper right of the page if you are interested.
Full details of the events below are in Zarya's Go for Launch! Diary.
zarya.info Blog, Facebook and Twitter
New for 2012 October - the Blog is a place for the stories and information that don't initially merit a web page in their own right. In the past, they might have been given a page in the 'Gallimaufry' section, or not been recorded at all.
Fresh content will be flagged through zarya.info's Twitter and Facebook feeds as they are added. They update and add to the information on the "Go For Launch" page. Both carry the same information and you can join/follow them from the menu at the top of the page.
