Meet the amateur astronomers who track secretive spy satellites for fun

Somehow I totally forgot to post this here: but after the Zuma launch and subsequent rumours of a failure made headlines, I was interviewed by Mary Beth Griggs of Popular Science magazine. It resulted in a very nice article about our amateur tracking activities, that you can read here.

Hi Marco, very interesting story! Can you maybe recommend a newer book then mentioned in the article? 'Observing Earth Satellites' is from 1983 and I think it would be better to use a more up-to-date book which references more modern techniques? Thanks and keep up the good work!
