Hi everybody,

I agree totally with Philip Chien. The posts that got me started in sat
observing were routine obs or purely descriptive ones. Once I knew
what I could observe and how it looked like then I got into positional
observations that are more challenging but can be useful for many
people on this list.

I still read all the "I saw Mir" type posts in case there would be a line
or a word that could give me valuable info as for the brightness or
behaviour of a specific object as I also collect all the positional
reports (like Eberst's) for future reference, for example, when I'm not
sure if I saw the right satellite.
