As suggested in the welcome message, I would like to introduce myself to the list. I have been an amateur astronomer since early childhood and a casual observer of satellites for the last few years. When I received a forwarded message yesterday about the possible opportunity to observe the decay of the Foton 12 R/B, I found a link (http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/index.htm ) that included a mention of this list and here I am. Although the decay didn't happen during the orbit that favored me, it has sparked my interest in observing this and other unusual satellite events. As a casual observer I have been using a DOS version of Traksat (v4.08) for pass predictions. I'm now using Windows 98 and I'm ready to invest in a Windows version of a satellite tracking program. If any of you are willing to recommend a program, please let me know. In searching a few archived messages of this list, I have seen several messages referring to SatSpy. Is this a good program? Are there better ones?
