Watching taikonauts go by
The Chinese have launched their second manned spacecraft. Tom and Stuart have discussion of the the flight of the taikonauts (Chinese for astronauts) and Shenzou 6 here and here. While there is a news article from New Scientist here.
I won't elaborte on this. But, if you want to see Shenzou 6 go overhead, head to Heavens-Above where there are predictions for Shenzou 6's visible passes over the next 5 days. Adelaide has only one decent pass, but the East coast has several. So go have a look.
I hope you get chance to spot it. Have a good eclipse too.
Hope you get your glasses fixed.
