    Hi, everybody,
    I would like to know if there is a database or web site on the Net that gives 
    a little information on the mission of the various satellites.  I think it is 
    far more interesting to observe a satellite you know something about, 
    just like it is more interesting to observe a star if you know its name 
    and something about it.
    Saw a surpisingly bright pass of Seasat 1 last night.  First time I have 
    logged that one and will add it to my "favorites" list.  That is what 
    has prompted my question.  Also video-taped a -8 Iridium flare (but 
    did not seem to be as bright as another I recorded that was listed 
    as -8), the GRO, and Spot 3 R/B (not naked eye from my site but 
    recordable with low-light video).
    Good birdwatching!
