Flight Path Forecast

The current flight path forecast looks good, seems like we wouldn’t have to chase too far. Forecasts from Wednesday onwards should be quite accurate, so we’ll keep a close eye on it.

Meanwhile many preparations are taking place, like packing of equipment, final software tweaks, final payload assemblies and many other things that we have to do. More info & images to follow as we make progress!
