    Congratulations, Russell, for 50 years of observing. 
    
    I'll reach 50 years of satellites in 2053, at age 87. I'll probably start
    that evening observing 99-025ZZZZZ NORAD 192058 Feng Yun C Debris, if I
    remember to charge my image stabilized dual 16" Dobsonian mini-binoculars (2
    lbs total weight).
    
    But seriously, here's to your next 50.
    
    Brad

    Hi All,
    I spotted my first satellite on 1958 January 22 at 17.40 U.T. It was Sputnik
    2. Then I saw it on the next revolution at 19.23 U.T. So that's the first 50
    years dealt with.
    
    At the time, there was just one artificial satellite in orbit. Now look how
    many there are!
    
    regards
    Russell
