    Update on the AO-92 commissioning process!

    Be ready for further Virginia Tech camera tests during the following approximate times:

    01:12 UTC – 01:52 UTC
    02:42 UTC – 02:51 UTC

    That first period should provide stations in Russia, China, and Japan an opportunity to capture images from AO-92. See the linked article for further updates on the commissioning process.

    I figured that the "thing" on the end of the antenna was just some shadow or digital artifact, but it's pretty cool to read that it's the fishing line that held the antenna stowed! (assuming it's fishing line, I know that's what the Naval Academy satellites use).
