I've been running in and out... got two good shots but in the city... light and air pollution. Not great. I think the film will be OK (used the tripod) maybe. I have had several digital cameras... great for documenting stuff but way too small on the buttons... the menu? What menu? Here lemme get an electron microscope to read that menu. Any quick shots... what quick shots?

Still like my old, old Minolta best... all banged up, works great. Hopefully Billy's out in the field in the dark shootin' clean... one man... gotta weight 120lbs... with cameras? Prolly double. Good guy, great eye, great shot.

We all have rosy cheeks. Click, click, click. USA 193... if there's to be a shot tonight... have a look... n2yo is up. Wink. Yes, cocoa. I like Fry's.

Breaking news on Sky at the moment......the Pentagon are "cautiously optimistic" for a go ahead with the satellite shootdown within the next half hour. Apparent scheduled time of missile launch, about 0330.

At precisely 10:30 pm here (est) n2yo went kaput for me
Tried reloading with no luck...just timed out. Now it's an immediate error without even trying to load. I'm sure the site is being totally pounded right now though, so I won't look too much into it

Me too.

I'm sat here wondering about whats more likely, the missiles hitting thier target when it's that far away and travelling that fast......or missing and hitting any one of thousands of other objects up there?

Can they detonate it remotely once it's missed the target or does it self detonate after a certain time period?

Just imagine the chaos that would ensure if it hit something that did'nt belong to the US!

Target remains... I think. His English is better than my Uboscrabblnuke. It should be just over the West Coast if it is still there...

U.S. hits dead spy satellite with missile, military sources say....

Thats awesome!!!

CNN.com says 140 miles up, and confirms missile hit. I guess the Lake Eerie gets to paint a satellite to go with those missile kills over the years. Awesome job guys!

Its a hit, 130 miles above the Earth's surface!!!



Now, do we wait for the pieces or do they just burn off?

That's great! Really awesome!

Sooo, ... Are we safe now?

It will take about two orbits for roughly 50% of the debris to enter the atmosphere and burn up. That's what they were saying earlier. Now that it's broken apart, everything should burn up nicely as it enters the atmosphere.
