    The Belgian Working Group Satellites(BWGS) is specialised in observing,
    collecting and analysing observations of mainly flashing satellites.
    Currently there are 468 satellites in our programme.
    We do have a central database of more than 50000 observations from 1957
    untill now.
    Most of the observers on this list send in their observations to the
    following adres:
    or by snail mail to our flashing satellite collecter Bram Dorreman:
    Bremstraat 29
    3930 Belgium
    If you want more to know about the BWGS then get a look at:
