This is the essence of my feelings, which I described to Josh,
when I first saw his proposal on his WWW site.

I believe the purpose of seesat-l is to help visual observers,
and in addition to the above I would like to add 'Unidentified
satellite?' 'Unexpected flash from...'  'Possible decay obs.'
'Flash period/pattern changed for... ' , and flash pattern/
magnitudes of new objects, and observations that disagree in
time/position with predictions, because of bad elsests, high
drag, or satellite maneuvres / reboosts.
