    Do I ever!  That big balloon is what got me into satellite observing and 
    astrophotography.  Life Magazine had a full page star trail shot of Echo 1 
    passing over the 85-foot dish at Goldstone.  Trying to emulate that image is 
    one of the things that got me into astrophotography.  The observing part led 
    me to Paul Maley when we were freshmen in high school in San Antonio.  The 
    rest is history.
