         'The enthusiastic descriptions of Iridium flares, etc. that I read on 
         Seesat are largely reponsible for my pursuit of satellite watching,'
         
         I would entirely agree with this - the descriptive and often beautiful 
         descriptions given here are of greater value to me than a list of 
         numbers.  I've nothing against professional observations, they just 
         don't do it for me - and I'm sure newcomers to this fascinating 
         subject would agree.
         
         Which leads me to ask - is this list for pros or newbies?  If its only 
         for pros then that should be made clear otherwise why can't anyone 
         post observations if they want to?
         
         New people are not going to get interested if all they see are reams 
         of numbers scrolling in front of their eyes - and shouldn't we be 
         encouraging interest in this amazing topic?
