    Hi all,
    
    My 8-year old son Sebastien saw a NOSS 2-3 pass near zenith last week on 
    Saturday, Sep. 7, at 02:09 UT. He was with his mother (I'm divorced) and saw a 
    triangular satellite formation moving overhead. His description, along with a 
    drawing he made, was so detailled that I had no difficulty identifying the trio 
    with SatSpy tonight, nearly a week later.
    
    The satellites were quite easy to see naked eye but not very bright. He's not 
    yet good at estimating magnitudes :-)
    
    Hope he will be a good SeeSat observer some day !
    
    Dan
