Something went wrong with the previous message.

Here is the correct one.

2015 was a good year for observing satellites. A lot of clear skies.
Only november had just 4 clear mornings or evenings.

2015   174    46      59       69            916       14541

A total of 14541 measured points were reported from 916 unique satellites.
That gives an avarage of 15.87 points/sat.
A lot of sats were only imaged once with 1-3 points.
The NOSS satellites more often with up to 350 points.

Highlights were the imaging of Dragon CRS-6 within 20 minutes after launch
and the new NOSS 3-7 pair manoevring to their operational position.

I hope 2016 will give also a lot of clear skies.
