Regarding question 2:

Of course there are many lists on internet, but I found it listed by 
Rainer Kracht in his list of top 50 bright sats at:
http://home.t-online.de/home/R.Kracht/top50.htm    
OR at a link in:
http://www2.satellite.eu.org/brite.html

It is also in the molczan elsets for LEO visible satellites at:
