Providing Space Information since 1999
zarya.info is a hobbyist website managed from Scarborough in Yorkshire, UK. 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. For some more about the site and its roots, look here.
What's happening Now?
The summary of upcoming events is more than just a list of launches - see what's going on overhead, and follow the links to background information and live webcasts of launches and landings.
There is a longer, more-detailed, version available in the Closed Orbit section where you will also find the zarya.info Blog. Closed orbit also contains highly-detailed lists of satellites in geosynchronous and sun-synchronous orbits.
What's In Orbit
Take a look at Zarya's launch lists for satellite descriptions, launch records, detailed orbits and a history of orbital manoeuvres.
zarya.info has both a Twitter feed and a Facebook page. They carry similar up to date notes on what's happening and timely reminders of events such as launches and dockings so it is not necessary to subscribe to both.
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 any other group in the UK, or even in Europe if a low-cost flight is available, then a talk or lecture can probably be arranged. Click the 'mail' icon towards the upper right of the page if you are interested.
