    The project has requested brightness observations:
    
    http://www.planetary.org/solarsail/watch/bright.html
    
    and has provided a place to submit reports:
    
    http://www.planetary.org/solarsail/watch/form.html
    
    They are also seeking photographs, and have set up a contest:

    There does not seem to be any request for positional observations. Perhaps the
    onboard GPS and terrestrial tracking is considered to be sufficient for orbital
    determination:
