Shooting down satelite

  1. Feb 20, 2008 #1
    If this happens, will this be easily visible?

    Also, does anyone know of a website or something that will announce when it is going to happen? I would love to be able to be outside watching if it is going to be visible. Well, assuming my skies will be clear enough to see anything at all... :rolleyes:

    There's already a thread about this:

    As you might imagine, there's quite a bit of interest from folks on this forum.

    Last I heard, the weather on the Pacific was getting too rough for them to take a shot. Might have to wait until tomorrow.

    Thanks Lisa. That thread seems to have a conspiracy flavor to it though about what the satelite IS. I am just looking for someplace on the internet that I can get up to the minute information on when it will be shot down. I would like to try to see it if it is possible.

    Ah. No, I'm not privy to any such sites. I know what I know about the satelite from the mainstream news - it's well filtered for any actual information, then watered down, down, down :smile: !
