    Was going to say you're fairly safe, you could let a bomb off under most Clydies....
    We have six horses at our place, the wife's new one is a clydie/TB cross, she's a gentle giant too.

    I don't ride personally, I'll stick to throwing my leg over something without a brain. (gee, hope the wife doesn't see this :rofl )

    I was out in the paddock last night and saw this! It lit up the sky like daylight for about 3-4 seconds. I just found out it was a Russian Satellite at about 14 feet and 1.6 tonnes .Glad the bugger was out at sea. I wont forget that sight in a hurry.

    Hey Mick,

    I got a cool app on my phone the othe day it tells you what sattelites are above you and you can track down where they come from (Ie france, china, Japan, US) and with a little more research I am sure you could find out what sort of pictures they are taking :D

    Nasa will also send you an email telling you the day before when the Space Station is visible to you and where to look for it that night.

    Drikko, I tried that and it said they only do it for persons in the US ?
    I had to do it by just watching the website. Its huge and you can see it clearly with high powered binoculars. I have had the priviledge of a brief coversation with them on a hand held VHF radio and another with the Mir space station before it fell down.
    Leif I will have a look for that one thanks.
