    The May/June 2005 issue of Night Sky, published by Sky 
    Publishing (publishers of Sky & Telescope), has a very nice, 
    well-illustrated five-page article called "Take a 'Sat-seeing' 
    Tour", pp. 42-46.  (Okay, the title's not the greatest, but 
    the cover says, "Your Mission: Spot the Space Station in 
    Orbit".)  It's by the magazine's editor, J. Kelly Beatty, and 
    covers various aspects of satellite observing quite well for 
    a beginning audience, in four pages of text.  (One page is an
    close-up of the ISS in orbit.).  The magazine is only a year 
    old, and I'm not sure how widely available it is, but maybe 
    it's in major bookstores.  The web site is:
