    That would be excellent!  I encourage the development and maintaining of
    such a database, with an easy-to-use interface.

    That would also be great!

    Please let us know of the developments!
    
    Would it be possible and practical for observations entered in the future
    at heavens-above.com to be stored there, and also copied to SeeSat-L?
