[21:54] <edwardmoore> ]i'm gonna try and film the -7 flare
[21:54] <Laurenceb> havent been any good flares in my area yet
[21:54] <edwardmoore> will send it you if you're still about after 10.30
[21:54] <Laurenceb> cool
[21:55] <Laurenceb> I took a pic of the iss
[21:55] <Laurenceb> but my camera was set to long exposure, and I didnt hold the camera still
[21:55] <edwardmoore> lol, lots of wiggly bits
[21:55] <Laurenceb> looks like its reentering the atmosphere :)
[21:56] <Laurenceb> I reprogrammed the glider computer to give me a countdown with gps
