(1980s European space x-ray telescope)
EXOSAT was a 1980s space X-ray telescope
operated by the European Space Agency.
(It has no relation to Exosatellites.)
It used Lunar Occultation Observations
to add precision to its observations, having been
placed in a highly Eccentric orbit to
assist in this and to reach high enough that
X-rays are unimpeded.
It performed a Slew Survey, with new discoveries
designated by the prefix EXO.
