Geek alert ... Visible International Space Station passes

Recommended Posts

TBH, it's bright enough that you'd have no trouble seeing it despite light pollution and and a bit of smog. I was amazed how bright it was.

Woah, just watched it go over now - totally clear sky and was amazed how bright it was and how fast it tracked across the sky. Awesome!

Thanks Vertigo ... I am going to show my dear wife this post just to show her that I am not the only person that, every now and again, gets excited by the ISS passing overhead!

And Fibble is right, 23:10 to 23:16 west to east across the M4 corridor should be good as long as the clouds stay away.

My 66yr old Mum is here and was jumping around on my drive screaming "I can see it! I can see it!"

I am so getting a telescope I already know what one I want and the wife has said yes.

My wife was with me but she didn't really see the fun in it.

@Riot is that just the single player game? Is multiplayer any better / longer?

You basically have a moonbase that is damaged to hell and you need to fix a bunch of parts. The co-op just has many more parts.

There is even a competitive part where you race to get the quickest time to fix the oxygen and energy supply.

I think the best time that I have gotten with Knappster and Jodack was about 16mins but we had a few parts go critical.

Its fun for about half an hour :P

Hopeful that modders will get a hold of it :D

I do like the game, but have to agree with Riot, and I find it frustrating how slow everything moves

Who let the retards into the forums, honestly. What next? You gonna moan about a abundance of gore in a horror game or boobs in a tekken/street fighter game ?

"This space game is slow"

"This horror game has too much gore"

"DURPA DURPA DURPA MOHAMME *bang*"

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
