    Just wondering, what's the reason some of you watch satellites, work
    related?  Purely hobbiest?
    Any goals for people,anybody have a 'must see' list they try to
    complete?   I've been lurking for a few years, so I know some of you
    specialize in types of satellites.   Even if I don't post, I do
    appreciate some of the observations people make.
    I first started intentionally seeking out satellites back in Sky-lab
    days.    Later on, after the shuttle missions started, I started
    watching those when I could.    I did manage to catch the Mir before
    it came back down.
    Lately, I've been more of a watcher, than try to figure out what I
    saw.   I do want to try for the hubble when I'm far enough south, but
    usually have to wait for vacation for that.
