This is going to be a little weird but I just thought this might get everyone thinking . Guess where the rocket will land .Whoever guesses the closest City and Country will win a 90% silver Quarter . If it lands anywhere else other than land all bets are off . Also if it breaks up into a bunch of small pieces the contest is void .Virtually one huge piece to qualify. My decision is final.
Must have 50 post or more , only 5 guesses between now and 10:00 AM tomorrow EST . If it lands before that time All bets are off . Contest will end sharply at 10:00 am Saturday. If I left any loose ends let me know soon .
Good luck and lets hope no one is hurt with that darn 22 ton chunk of metal

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

I saw it! It was a conitinuos line of white dots moving in a straight line across the entire sky for more than a minute at 9:28 PM in NE Ohio.
I took video with my cellphone but its very hard to see.

Good idea. I'll be following this closely.

Osh, Kyrgyzstan.

That said, it seems unlikely that it'll land on land and reenter in one big piece.

I think (and hope) it will fully disintegrate as it falls, somewhere over the Indian Ocean. No land impact and only a tiny splashdown IF ANY if the rocket does impact the water at say 1717'20"/5851'31" but that's as close as I can get.

Half of you guys don't bother to read the rules . I said if it comes down in any part of water then it's no contest and contest is over at 10:00 AM Saturday 5/8/21 . Had I thought about this days ago I would have extended the time period .

I mean, that's more than 20 kilos of silver! That got me so excited about this legally binding contest that I went straight to the "Quick Reply."

You're REALLY NICE to offer a prize like this T-BOP!

with quotation marks INSIDE the "QUOTE BOX" too!


Pre Reply Edit:

Oh, wait! I just checked out the map and it looks like there IS a small island in that location! The rocket will hit... St. Bandon, also know as Cargados Carajos, Mauritius. So I am within the rules.

(If it does hit anywhere near the above, I'm buying lottery tickets in every state within driving distance of Lacey Township, NJ.)

If it does hit land, I think it will impact its launching pad.
