ISS sighting, 15 Dec

24 posts in this topic

Well, let's try this one. This will be a pass from NW to SE. www.Heavens-Above shows it visible fron between Bozeman MT and Pocatello, ID, over Denver CO, Bethany OK, Tyler Tx and going into shadow just before Baton Rouge LA.

Does anyone know Waymarkers (or Geocachers that would play) in the line of travel?

Send an email to Hamquilter - she’s somewhere in OK, or Outspoken1 who I think is around Denver, if I recall. Where are you, Vulture?

I'm in Bethany OK, next to Hamquilter. Outspoken1 could work. I'll start looking at waymarks around Denver and Idaho and see if I can find folks around there.

vulture1957, have you found a partner?

I might be able to get a friend near Denver to help.

not so far. Put out a couple of feelers to Waymarkers in the areas, got 1 reply that they are too far out of the area.

I've sent you an email with information about your partner in the Denver area. Hopefully she will join us here in the next day or two.

I have written to folks in SE TX, Louisiana, Denver area, and Idaho. Have not gotten any positive responses. Does anyone know Waymarkers or Geocachers that may be willing to do this?

Your partner will be Pahaska_1 near Denver, CO. I have just sent a joint email to both of you, so you should have each others email as well as mine.

If you have questions, just ask.

Good Luck

Thanks 8Nuts (Gary). I appreciate the help. I heard from Dingo262 in Boise who is also going to try for the sighting.

Great. That means you could create a threesome. Just list info from all three on each Waymark created.

great news! We have 2 people in the Boise area, one in Colorado, me in Oklahoma and one in Louisiana for the ISS sighting Thursday. With all these people looking, SOMEONE should get a clear view! Hopefully all of us. Still room for others. Anyone know waymarkers in Salt Lake City, western Kansas, southwest Wyoming??

In a personal message vulture1957 sent to me, he asked:

I have 2 guys both around Boise ID that answered my posts for this. Can I/we put both of them on the write-up for the sighting, or do we have to make it 2 separate sightings? (It would just be 2 different 4 player sightings, one person different.) Also, do I "visit" one of the other player's waymark for on this sighting, even if  i am a player, for a visit? 

I responded:

They have to have separate partners because they are too close together. One of the Boise people could pair with Benchmark Blasterz to create a separate pair. The rest will work well together as a foursome (ID, CO, OK, LA.) The LA Waymarker would have to be near the coast, or at least 1 minute of time from you. The ISS passes into the Earths shadow approximately 1 minute and 15 seconds after it passes you and before it gets over the coast. The LA person may have to use that time as his max altitude. You don't count time after the ISS is in shadow. Will his max altitude be over 45° at that time? If not, you can't use him.
Each Waymarker that sees the ISS and creates a Waymark can visit the Waymark that his partner creates. It can be only one visit to the nearest partners Waymark, even if he had more than one partner.

I might be willing to work with the extra Boise guy, if he's still looking for a partner. It's been a long time since I've created a waymark in this category.

n2life - Boise ID.  I'll be working with dingo262 in Boise, Pahaska_1 in Golden CO, and Sequoia_2 in Melder LA.  And we can all "visit" the other team's waymarks!

I already have achieved this WM, but there is another pass over on the 15th that qualifies at 6:08 PM at 47° if it helps.

Not quite. You are allowed one visit per Pass. The visit must be to the nearest partners Waymark from your location.

In this case, where two teams are creating Waymarks for the same ISS Pass, You can visit your nearest partners Waymark that your team created AND You can also visit the nearest Waymark that a member of the other team created.

Also remember that once you have created an ISS Waymark, you are allowed to claim a visit to any future Waymarked Pass that meets the Waymarking requirements (you must see the ISS during that Pass and your observed Max Altitude must be greater than 45°. Your visit should include information for your location (your location, Brightness, Max Alt, and Time.)

Max and 99 is less than 296 miles from Benchmark Blasters. Only one of you can work with Boise. I'll leave it up to you two to decide. Or let Boise decide.

You are right. That would be the ISS Pass just before the one that they are doing. The 6:08 pass travels from Toledo, OH to Norfolk, VA.

The pass after the one they are doing will go over San Diego, CA at 76° at 6:16 pm.

I will be viewing this pass over if anyone needs a partner.
