Hi Drew.

If you would like to have a look at the Vega orbit, find a LEO sat in NOVA and change the following:

Inclination  70 degrees
Mean motion 14.05
Eccentricity  0.079

It does not show everything correctly because of launch time but it does show coverage and an orbital period near 105 minutes.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Preliminary Keplerarian elements for Vega launch

Does anyone have any preliminary keps for this one? I'm not so worried about 

whether they are correct with respect to launch/pass times, but just for a 

generic orbit of the same dimensions. I think it's supposed to be 350x1500km, 71 

degree inclination, or thereabouts?
