    If you both do it voluntarily probably ten times as much! (as many of you
    are mathematically inclined you will have not trouble figuring that one out
    Congratulations to all concerned.   Maybe time to give thought to how to
    celebrate the 10th (a get-together somewhere with quite reliably good skies
    maybe for those able to travel?)
    This post gives some interesting background to the list's inception:
    Looking back over the archives I notice one of the earliest posts is an item
    concerning MIR tumbling,
    Someone else had problems with Seesat-l being confused with Seesat numeral 1
    (must have been fixed by using an upper case L.)
    It was also suggested that the list should be changed to Satsee to avoid the
    impression that it was a list concerning the Seasat satellite.
    Maybe those responsible for the list might have more stories to tell about
    its inception , early events etc?
    (And by the way we have some clear skies here- viewing has been almost
    impossible over the last  month or two owing to variable cloud- which
    usually has cleared at daytime if at all!)
