Tracking The Mayak Satellite

On July 14, an amateur group in Russia launched a small satellite called Mayak. They said it would become the “brightest star” in the sky. Satellite tracking websites like Heavens Above are already trying to follow it, hoping to offer information on Mayak’s passes over various parts of the world. Heavens Above commented:

We now have a provisional orbit from Space-Track which you can use to generate predictions. Please note that the magnitude estimates are possibly very inaccurate until actual observations are reported.
