Artificial celestial bodies (ACBs), during their 50 years of existence, have become full members of space in the same way as their older colleagues: stars, planets, comets and so on. Similar to all natural celestial bodies they can be investigated by astronomical and astrophysical methods. One of the methods for investigating ACBs is photometric observations. Work on the realization of photometrical observations of ACBs has been carried out in many astronomical observatories and institutions. In particular, several instruments for this kind of observation at the Lviv Astronomical Observatory and the Zvenigorod Astronomical Observatory have been constructed. The importance of observations on ACBs by photometric methods is considered in this paper. A description of the equipment used for such observations and the obtained results are given in this paper too.
