    Hi Everyone,
                    It has been a long while since I have actively participated 
    in SeeSat-L,   so maybe it is time for me to reintroduce myself & give 
    details of my web page. As many of you know I was quite active in observing 
    high altitude satellites particularly geoflashers and centaur rockets, trying 
    to obtain flash period measurements when possible. The last couple of years 
    I've been rather inactive, due to work obligations and current lack of a 
    suitable "backyard" observing location. 
        I have a web page detailing observing techniques for high altitude 
    satellites, as well as observing lists and some flash period analysis. This 
    can be found at a new URL;
    I haven't updated the site since 2000, so many of the external links are no 
    longer valid. In the next few weeks I will be able to update and expand the 
    site, feedback and input are welcome.
        I'm hoping to be able to observe more regularly now, concentrating on 
    geoflashers primarily. Although I don't have a nearby location to make 
    routine observations I'm trying to get out to a dark sky site 1-2 times per 
    month. Last night I was up at Lake Sonoma, CA but we got clouded out before I 
    could make any serious observations :-(
        I'm glad to see that some of the Gorizont's continue to be observed and 
    timed. Has anyone been observing Gorizont 23 (91-046A) regularly since 2000? 
    This is an interesting geoflasher since the flash period varies cyclical over 
    a period of several months (see my web page for details) - it would be nice 
    to know if this has continued.
        Best wishes and clear skies,
        Jason P Hatton
