'[OT]: New Star'
2000\11\29@044155 by Russell McMahon

picon face
Look out for the appearance of a very bright new object in the sky later
next month.
It's expected there will only be one star (Sirius) that is brighter.
Any correspondence with the coming of Christmas is (probably) entirely
coincidental :-)

Hi,

Space station? Is that "Mir" conjecture?

Seems like they reckon it will come down in a narrow strip the length of
India, or something like that. According to "Have I got news for you", that
is like parking a VW Golf in an area the size of Wales. No mention of the
fairer sex's driving capabilities will be mentioned.

Instead, you'd think in this day and age of technology........

It's the "International Space Station". STS-97 aka Endeavour will deliver 17
tons of solar panels which when installed will give it a 240 foot "wing
span" and make it brighter in the sky than anything except Sol, Luna and
Sirius. I guess that makes it brighter than Venus so it's going to be
impressive.

Hello Russell,

I thought it was going to be the MIR on its final voyage, the Russians claim
that they can predict it will hit the ocean next to Australia.

Do you have a link showing the orbit schedule?  I've seen a few satellites while
out stargazing, and this would be really neat to see.

America has run out of places for its landfills - care to make
an offer on western Ozland?

You've got me there :-)

It was along the lines of NASA's caption and can be considered as a pun.

So - who's going to be first with a hand-held Pic controlled orbital
predictor, so we know where and when to look?

Too late, my PIC based web crawler found this page for me
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/

Ok, ok...I might have lied about the PIC, but the above page has a nifty
java applet that predicts the position of several sattelites (including the
ISS) for viewing from many cities accross the world.

Damn, just too late, I was going to ask....

The Java applet has various cities in both hemispheres including Oz, so I
guess so...

Yes

If you go to
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/
and select 'Where is the Station?'

the current position will be displayed on a world map with the previous
track

Click on INFO for basic information (Micro$oft equivalent Help)
just browse the site and the links for more detailed information
