Instead of sending everybody individual messages, I'm taking the easy way
out by E-mailing SeeSat.

An article on the Iridium satellites will be appearing in the May issue of
"Sky and Telescope".  Modesty prevents me from mentioning the author of the
article, but if you like the article I'll pass on any compliments the next
time I see him in a mirror.

If you don't like the article then the blame clearly must be placed on the
editor.  ;-)

Thanks to everybody who helped with their observations, descrptions,
detective work, and software.
