    Hello Everyone,
    I just joined the list a little while back and wanted to send something out
    saying who I was..
    My Name is Ted Nichols II, and I'm an 18 year old college student from near
    Harrisburg, PA. I'm also a member of the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg.
    I also campaigned for a NASA Mission to Pluto that some of you may have
    heard about via the internet and collected thousands of signatures in
    support of a mission. The site I started is at www.plutomission.com ....
    I've been an active satellite observer for over 3 years, and am fascinated
    by watching satellites pass over. I've also polished mirrors for 2 of the 3
    starshine satellites :)
    I record all my observations and usually am out every night looking for the
    brightest to the dimmest.
    I've always used Heavens-Above (early on STSPLUS)  for my predictions, and
    am probably spoiled by howeasy it is, but sometimes it doesn't have what I'm
    looking for. I was wondering what programs you guys use to predict passes,
    I've always been interested in viewing Progress Freighters Passes (not just
    decays) and Heavens-Above never shows them so I'm wondering how I'd figure
    those out or how you guys do.
    Warm Regards,
    Ted A. Nichols II
