    A while ago I sent out a question asking people about the size of the 
    satellite watching hobby.  Here's a summary of the results.  I got 11 
    responses.  The average number of times per year people go out 
    observing is 70.  Although that seems to be split into two classes: 
    people who go at least weekly, and people who go occasionally.  Only 
    five of the respondents had ever traveled to see a specific event, and 
    they had done so very few times.  There are still about 600 subscribers 
    on the list.  This would be consistent with a few tens of regulars and 
    a few hundred lurkers.
