The Langley ARC members are to be congratulated as they successfully completed their second contact with the International Space Station today. The entire pass was caught on live-streaming video (with perfect audio especially from ISS) as students from the elementary school . This is great publicity for amateur radio in Canada and around the world. As the ISS passed over British Columbia the astronauts commented that they were passing over the mountains and could see snow coming up in the Calgary area. The most amazing thing seen from space was the lightening in a thunderstorm. Also the astronauts were saying they could see radiation flashes when they were sleeping. The hams timed the contact perfectly as the last words of ISS faded into the noise.
Congratulations Langley ARC. Well done.
