Hi! >Months ago, while reading old posts, I found a formula expressing satellite magnitude as a function of standard magnitude >and phase angle. >Cannot find it now in the huge archive. Help and thanks! > >Giuseppe See McCant formula: http://www.sat.belastro.net/appendix/m0_McCants.gif where "m0" -- standard magnitude, "m_r" -- magnitude at a moment, "r" -- distance to satellite, "psi" -- phase angle. Also you can use another formula: http://www.sat.belastro.net/appendix/m0_my.gif where "psi_0" = 90 deg., "r0" = 1000 km. These formulas absolutely identical. -- Best regards, Vitaly (Minsk, Belarus). _______________________________________________ Seesat-l mailing list http://mailman.satobs.org/mailman/listinfo/seesat-l
