Dear SatObs community,

GSoC is about to end, and your help has been incredibly valuable for us. We
would like to ask you guys for some more observations of the ISS and the
NOAA satellites in the next few days, if it were possible. We have noted
that best results are achieved when 6 or more consecutive observations a
reported.

Thanks to everyone in advance!

Best regards,
Jorge A. Pérez
