  5. A thread concerning both aviation and space flight coupled together with the branch of science which deals with celestial objects, space, and the physical universe as a whole. The Chinese space station Tiangong-1 is set to fall to Earth over this weekend. The latest from the European Space Agency (ESA) predicts 1615 hrs GMT on Sunday 1st April 2018 plus or minus nine hours. This tracker is continuously updated to show the current position and height as the orbit decays. When Skylab fell to Earth in 1979 a $400 littering ticket was issued by a park service official in Western Australia; apparently it still hasn’t been paid and has been written off. Useful Sites Heavens-Above is a website developed and maintained by Chris Peat as Heavens-Above GmbH. The web site is dedicated to helping people observe and track satellites orbiting the Earth without the need for optical equipment such as binoculars or telescopes. It provides detailed star charts showing the trajectory of the satellites against the background of the stars as seen during a pass. Special attention is paid to the ISS, Iridium flares and other satellites. Space shuttle missions were tracked until the program was retired in July 2011. The website also offers information on currently visible comets, asteroids, planet details, and other miscellaneous information. N2YO provides real time tracking and pass predictions with orbital paths and footprints overlaid on Google Maps.It features an alerting system that automatically notifies users via SMS and/or email before International Space Station crosses the local sky. The N2YO.com system powers ESA's, Space.com's and many other's satellite tracking web pages. NASA Lunar Eclipse Explorer computes the local circumstances for every lunar eclipse for any century from 2000 BC to 3000 AD. Forget about city etc, just enter your latitude and longitude as a decimal. NASA Solar Eclipse Explorer computes the local circumstances for every solar eclipse for any century from 1500 BC to 3000 AD. Again, forget about city etc, just enter your latitude and longitude as a decimal. International Space Station Transit Finder calculates when the ISS transits across the face of the sun and moon from a position near you. Don’t forget your solar filters if you’re looking at the sun. Telescope.org is where you can request The Open University’s automated telescope on Mount Teide, Tenerife to take a photograph for you. Airliners.net is an aviation website that includes an extensive photo database of aircraft and airports, as well as a forum catering to civil and military aviation together with spaceflights. If you have any questions, please ask and I’ll do my best to answer them.

    Aerospace and Astronomy.

    You are vague about the direction. There's a compass on your iphone, can you not use it to give me a direction in degrees?

    Aerospace and Astronomy.

    The only thing big and bright in that neck of the woods at that time was Jupiter. Altitude 15 degrees, azimuth 231 degrees (slightly west of south-west).

    Aerospace and Astronomy.

    Jupiter is at Opposition at the moment meaning the giant planet is at its closest approach to Earth and its face is fully illuminated by the Sun. It is brighter than any other time of the year and is visible all night long. It's easily visible with the naked eye (very bright), however, a small pair of binoculars will allow you to see Jupiter's four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet. The further south you are, the higher in the sky it will be. In the British Isles 10-15 degrees above the horizon, Australia and New Zealand - almost overhead. Online Planetarium

    Betty Driver Memorial Soapstar Superstar Thread

    Particularly relevant to the thread title – she played Betty's sister. In fact, it seems Maggie was there first, and Betty was only introduced later to give her someone to bounce off. Betty had an illegitimate son named Gordon and gave him up to her married sister Maggie to raise. OMG, I'm turning into Deathray. Where's me sock?

  22. If people realise they can access the site by using a different browser then they have no need to alter their clocks. If people aren't trying a different browser then they can't read your post telling them to alter their clocks. I usually use Chrome which doesn't allow me to read your post at present. I can get on the site by using Internet Explorer and so have no need to alter my clock because I just continue to use IE until everything returns to normal.
  23. How do you expect people to read that and follow the advice if they can't access this site.
