Although I can no longer follow them, I take my few days of vacation and
this topic to give my list of satellites that can be pretty to see. In
winter, the pair of TerraSar-X and Tandem-X satellites sometimes create a
beautiful effect even if their brightness is not excessively dazzling, they
can be easy to see.
Telkom 3, is a satellite that can dazzle with its powerful flashes when the
conditions are given, in addition it sometimes goes low enough to dazzle
and be fast. True, I do not know how it will continue now after months of
absence in my follow up.
OAO 3 (Copernicus) may have short but bright flares (around magnitude -2).
I agree with several of Kevin's list to whom I have occasionally seen.
The Hubble Telescope, although always appearing to the South, has also left
some flares around magnitude -1
Other satellites that I have pointed out are several Yaogan, KompSat 5 and
ERS 1 among others.
Ofeq 11, see it in complete safety, only once, and was nice, but very weak
compared to the previous ones.
29393 made me have very good times for a couple of months, although this is
no longer
Although for personal reasons I can not follow them, I always have the
liking for it. In fact, these days I am identifying a few of those I see,
and it is a joy if only to get that.
