I am not an observer of flashes but I developped several PC programs:
Visualisation at the screen:
  - Around the Globe
  - Amongst the stars
  - To analyse a period of time for up to 100 satellites
  - To identify an unexpected satellite
  - The most important one is control my telescope by means of the PC and
    track automatically any satellite. With Bart and 4 other friends we
    could track 21 satellites during the same night and even observe the
    flashes every 40 sec of the rocket of COMSTAR 4 which was 25000 Km far
    from us.
    I made a demonstration at EUROSOM 1994 and an article should be
    in a next issue of FLASH. The main programs can be downloaded from my
little BBS (300-14400 BPS) on request first by phone at ..32 81 460567 (a
have only one line). Anybody would be welcome for observing with my
system either in WEPION Belgium where I am living or in ESPARRON near
PUIMICHEL where I am almost every month.
