Congratulations Peter on reaching this milestone. Your observations supported geophysical researches during the first
decades of the space age. More recently, you have contributed to public space situational awareness. Your mastery of
binoculars and stopwatch observation greatly benefitted our LEO satellite orbital analyses. Your camera observations
helped extend our reach to geosynchronous orbit and beyond. I wish you good health and clear skies!
