    . Because satellites across stars are a fantastic show at night.
    . Because that's very challenging to become a "superb" satellite observer ; and because people use to love doing what they are very good at.  :)

    Just wondering, what's the reason some of you watch satellites, work
    related? Purely hobbiest?
    Any goals for people,anybody have a 'must see' list they try to
    complete? I've been lurking for a few years, so I know some of you
    specialize in types of satellites. Even if I don't post, I do
    appreciate some of the observations people make.
    I first started intentionally seeking out satellites back in Sky-lab
    days. Later on, after the shuttle missions started, I started
    watching those when I could. I did manage to catch the Mir before
    it came back down.
    Lately, I've been more of a watcher, than try to figure out what I
    saw. I do want to try for the hubble when I'm far enough south, but
    usually have to wait for vacation for that.
