From: Brian Cuthbertson <email@example.com> Date: Sun, 24 Jan 1999 14:22:29 -0600 (CST) Fwd Date: Mon, 25 Jan 1999 11:24:54 -0500 Subject: Satellite Tracking Reference Folks, Since satellites can often be the source of erroneous UFO reports, I submit the follwing web page as a reference for any UFO researcher. Perhaps it will occasionally help in separating the wheat from the chaff when reports come in. This comes from an email list (other than updates!) to which I subscribe. -Brian Cuthbertson ========================================================== Site du Jour of the Day (990125) January 25, 1999 SatPasses Satellite Passes Over North American Cities http://www.bester.com/satpasses.html Bester Tracking Systems Emeryville, California, USA In the thirty years since the space race heated up, ground based observers have had the pleasure of seeing or listening to man-made objects passing overhead. Russian technology held the world in awe as Sputnik beeped and blinked for an audience of millions. Who can forget the anticipation of being creamed by Skylab during its last failing orbits? Today there are several distinct satellites visible with the naked eye, binoculars or telescopes, and Bester Tracking Systems has data available for such observations from major North American cities at this site. Included are Shuttle Missions (once up), Russia's Space Station Mir, International Space Station, Hubble Space Telescope, Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, Ocean Remote Sensing Satellite Seasat and the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission. For people living outside of North America, the Visual Satellite Observer's Home Page (http://www.satellite.eu.org/sat/vsohp/satintro.html) produced by Jeff Hunt, Neil Clifford and Bart De Pontieu is an alternate resource with many international pointers and options.
