The "scientific" satellite which North Korea claims it launched into orbit atop the Kwangmyongsong-4, long-range missile Saturday was apparently a success. North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has officially added the satellite to its list of official devices in orbit around the Earth, and it is passing over the state of Louisiana right now.

Actually, according to NORAD, North Korea now has two satellites circling the Earth. The first satellite, which the regime claims to be the result of its third successful long-range missile launch into space, was placed into orbit in 2012. Saturday's second successful satellite launch was North Korea's fourth venture into space. Launched for "weather forecasting" and other scientific purposes according to the regime, it is also likely to be collecting images when it passes over the United States.

Kwangmyongsong 4, has the NORAD catalog number 41332 and Kwangmyongsong 3-2, launched in 2012, is 39026. Both North Korean satellites can be tracked an the website under the names KMS-4 and KMS 3-2.
