    At the risk of seeming pedantic, I don't think this activity of 
    observing and photographing satellites is really science, because it 
    does not consist of discovering new truths about the natural world, 
    but rather of observing and analyzing man-made objects. However the 
    desire for accuracy and for avoiding self-deception is the same as 
    the basic sine-qua-non of good science. Thus there is a lot in 
    common.
