Default Orbital elements. Tiangong-1

Does anyone have, or know how to download the orbital
elements for this spacecraft. I want to track it
with Orbitron and look out for it.

Huge numbers of orbital elements, in the form of Two-Line Elements (TLEs) are available from www.Celestrak.com. They are grouped in sets, for example the last 30 day's launches.

This TLE format is the one required by most orbit tracking software.

Richard
