These astronomers are research associates of the Pulkovo Observatory, near St Petersburg, Russia. The world's first satellite, Sputnik 1, was launched on 4th October 1957. By the time these observations took place in October 1958, there were three satellites in orbit: Sputnik 3, Explorer 1, and Explorer 4. The last two were part of the US program of Explorer satellites.
