    The first satellite I saw was Sputnik 3 rocket and I'd like to know what it 
    really looked like. Are there any pictures available of Sputnik 1, 2 or 3 
    Rockets before launch?
    
    Can anyone supply an illustration of what these 3 rockets looked like while 
    in orbit?
    
    Thanks.
