Hello all viewers, I'm new to the list. Been viewing visible satellites for quite a while. Started out seriously during a ham radio mountain-topping expedition about 25 years ago. Mile high ... clear black sky ... what were those moving 'stars'? I'd been lucky enough to see Sputnik-1 rocket go over Melbourne on its first visible orbit back in 1957. But Melbourne skies aren't all that good for satellite watching. About myself: William B Magnusson (Bill) Ham radio call vk3jt Home location, Milawa, Victoria, Australia. 36 27 46.8 S 146 23 15.8 E tz +10 I am an ex teacher and school administrator with a mechanical engineering background. 66 years old and now retired. Other interests include amateur astronomy and amateur radio digital satellites. I use SatSpy for predicting the visible passes and get keps mostly from the celestrak web site. Milawa is a small country farming town well away from any large city. I live 3 km out of town. We have good clear skies and, being in a 50km wide valley I have a flat horizon and I can see stars right down to almost 0 degrees. I hope to find heaps of valuable information on the list and perhaps have the opportunity to contribute some too. I have a question but I'll put that in a separate post. My best regards to all, Bill Magnusson.
