2018-099 in Celestrak's satcat again for the question Where can I find the TLE of ExseedSat 1, India's first ever private LEO satellite? and noticed that the last object listed is
2018-099BS 43822 OBJECT BS has a source/ownership of
TBD and a Orbital Status Code of
NEA meaning no elements available.
What is Object BS, and how can it have an entry in the satcat without any orbital elements? Is this a lost satellite from the payload, or some bit of broken material that fell off? April 1st is a long way off...
It's the only line in
2018-099 without an
* in column 21.
Please no "I suspect..." answers. If it is known please post, but for this question pure speculation doesn't count without some supporting source(s). However, a documented similar situation that was resolved could be a supporting source. Thanks!
Update: Object BS's entry in the satcat has been modified/upgraded, it shows some nominal orbital elements
