Hello all,

I am new to this, and have been on the list for less than a month.

I have yet to observe my first satellite!

My question is:  What does the "R/B" stand for after some of the object
names?  For example:

NORAD#:  00876  OBJECT NAME:  Cosmos 44
NORAD#:  00877  OBJECT NAME:  Cosmos 44 R/B

Thanks,

Kent
