Fitsat-1 (Niwaka) Led Experiment over Europe
On December 13 at 22:10 UTC (23:10 CEST) The Fitsat-1 LED experiment will be active over Europe. Let’s hope it’s a clear night, so we all can see the 200W LED display sending Morse code in the sky.
Maybe it is possible to make a picture or a little video from the experiment when it passes your locator. Maybe it is possible that you send me a copy. Everybody have fun observing the Fitsat-1 Led experiment.
