A while back, Oldschool shared a cool site that would let you track current flight patterns all around the world. I had it bookmarked on another device, but that device is now dead, D. E. D., dead. If anyone still has that site bookmarked, is this the right one?

The resource is golden. I can monitor the flight of a family member to know they make it to their destination safely. I can also see how the Earth is not flat, ha!

T.E.G. routinely uses the link to determine which "blinky-blink" lights in the sky require more serious scrutiny.  A cigar is usually involved in uncovering these nefarious actions, but very rarely alcohol.  

 

I have spent time beside him as he tracked aircraft and it was cool to step outside as they crossed over his house.  Science in action! 

It is also uncomfortable watching planes flying away from severe weather fronts approaching major airports.

Another fun site is "marine traffic" which is a live map tracking world wide maritime traffic.  https://www.marinetraffic.com

T.E.G. and I used both sites to debunk the notion that the "Andaman & Nicobar Island" natives lived in isolation from the world.

The sites showed daily incursions of airplanes, helicopters and ships of all sizes passing close by, or directly over the island.  We both agreed that while the natives did not want contact with the outside world, by no means could they be considered "totally cut off from civilization" as the news media stated.

Part of the fun is to track the vessels to determine country of origin.  Neither site however displayed any military or governmental flight information.  Go figure!

I have been checking out these two trackers again, and find their data very revealing. Commercial activity gives a good overview of other situations that is often not covered by our news and political expositions.

I like looking at the ISS tracker.  I used to blast packet transmissions on my ham radio leaving messages for the astronauts in their mailbox.

It also lets you know where the next 3 passes will be, so you can look up and see it.  A good pass will give you 5 minutes to look at it as is passes from horizon to horizon.

There is a similar thing for cargo ships

During the CCP virus (Covid1984) lock-down when all the borders were supposed to be closed and locked down, I checked https://www.flightradar24.com/ and was surprised to see the amount of passenger aircraft coming and going despite the "lock-down" and "bans" on international travel and arrivals.

These are indeed handy apps to access and I'm a bit surprised they are available to the general public and terrorists alike.

Had a feminist loudly declare her superiority because women can multi task. Told her to "Shut up and fuck off" but she couldn't do either!
