Concerning the Next PPAS update and PPAS 7


Tuesday evening I will create the next update to our archive of
observations of flashing satellites, the PPAS.

Also once a year all original files and all updates which appeared during
the last months will be mixed together.

Currently the PPAS has version 6, so the new version will be 7.

This is also the time that we have the possibility to remove
errors in the previous version.
So if you have found errors in our PPAS6, please let them also
know before Tuesday evening.
Errors can be of different kinds : non-existing objects, observations
of objects after they have decayed, wrong identification of a
satellite and so on...
Tristan for instance found an observation made by someone before
the guy was born... :-)

So please send your observations and remarks before Tuesday 18 March,
18h UT to:
