Hello All,

As requested, I would like to introduce myself as a new member of SeeSat.

My name is Tom Weafer and I live in Dublin, Ireland.

I have been observing Mir and the Shuttle on a casual basis
for about 2 years now. These observations were an offshoot of
an interest in Amature Astronomy which I took up about 4 years ago.

At this point I can now use the Norad TLE`s together with
STSPlus to generate MIR and Shuttle passes over Ireland, and
have had some successfull observations as a result.

Eventually I hope to make observations of some more bright 
satellites which may pass over Ireland(a brief message with
the names of the 3 brightest sats would be appreciated !), and to observe
the ISS when it is assembled in orbit.
