I can see data for 11 of the satellites on the MPEC site:


Not sure where the information for the 12th satellite is, and which one is "Valetudo" (wouldn't entirely surprise me if it were the missing one).

(Judging by their policy, I think I'm ok to link to these here, but I'm not sure whether or not it's ok to create a .ssc file from this information)
