Congratulations to long-time SeeSat-L member Paul Maley, who has succeeded
(not for the first time) to get one of his satellite pictures published in
Aviation Week & Space Technology. 

For those of you have access to AW&ST, page 17 of the March 25 issue of AW&ST 
has a very nice picture Paul took of the tether (TSS-1R). Paul will show the
video of his observations at Eurosom 2, in October (check out
http://www.rzg.mpg.de/~bdp/europaul.html for an overview of Paul's 
distinguished satellite career!).

And for more observations of TSS-1R, point your Web-browser to:

And don't forget to vote on the preliminary Usenet-proposal. Your massive
response is needed :-)

Finally a small administrative remark. After the unpleasant 'echoes from the
past', I've now changed the settings of SeeSat-L so that people who are not
on the subscribers list can not submit posts to SeeSat-L. This may have the
unpleasant side-effect that if you post a message from another account than
the one which receives SeeSat-L mail, it may not be accepted. If this happens
to you or if you regularly post messages from another address, let me know, I
will add it to the accept-list.

Has anyone seen STS-76 separate from MIR yet (I mean before it docked to MIR) ?
I hope to catch a glimpse tomorrow morning, if the weather stays as nice as
it is right now.

Now back to your regular Hyakutake schedule, I mean satellite schedule :-)

Cheers,
