An exciting new Milestone: Celebrating the 3,000,000th SatNOGS Observation!

We are excited and thrilled to announce that the SatNOGS network has reached its 3.000.000th observation on the 16th of October!

Observation #3000000 was uploaded on the SatNOGS Network by station #704- kc1ist in Somerville, Massachusetts, USA, operated by kc1ist receiving data from the  XW-2E picosatellite.

The 3.000.000th observation is a result of the continuous efforts of hundreds of ground station owners around the world. They are the ones scheduling, organising and performing the satellite observations. They all make up SatNOGS, the collaborative and dynamic, open-source network of satellite ground stations.

Today, the SatNOGS community boasts dazzling statistics. A booming number of 8k observations per day made by 200+ fully operational ground stations and 120+ in testing mode. The observations come from 450+ satellites and 960+ transmitters having delivered over 84.880.000 data frames.
