I'm Igor Lissov from Moscow and maybe the only Seesat-L subscriber
in Russia with the exception of KGB and GRU :-).

I began satellite observations from Moscow and its surroundings in 1993
and my first object was, obviously, the Mir station. In February 1994 I was
lucky to see shuttle over Moscow (Discovery, STS-60) for the first time. Later,
I added STS-64, STS-68 and STS-63 to this list. The two missions with 57 deg.
inclination were especially interesting because shuttle went just overhead.

This summer I found myself involved in the USA-125 hunt and made some
useful contributions to Seesat-L. I would like to participate in such activities
from time to time but regular daily observations of various interesting
is above my possibilities.

By coincidence, I'm also kind of 'end user' of Seesat-L information. I'm
Deputy Chief Editor of Novosti Kosmonavtiki (News of Cosmonautics), the
only Russian magazine devoted exclusively to spaceflight. With the help of
Mr. Molczan, I've prepared already reports of visual observations and orbit
determination of USA-119/122, TiPS and USA-125.

Clear skyies,
