Lβ2 X-ray satellite spectra of tungsten and gold are calculated using the Multi-Configuration Dirac-Fock energies and compared with recent experimental data. New calculations of L1-L3M5 Coster-Kronig transition energies for tungsten are presented, confirming the origin of the Lβ2 visible satellites reported by two experimental groups. We found the value 5.09 eV for the average energy of the L1-L3M5 Coster-Kronig transition in tungsten. The Lβ2 satellite spectrum of tungsten was calculated in the framework of a statistical model, which makes use of Racah's algebra. A detailed calculation of the Lβ2 and Lβ15 satellite spectra was performed for gold.
