    Santa shot down over Syrian air space

    Strange story to be releasing given the Jordanian pilot shot down and captured by IS.

    Saw him.

    He must ride a 29’er given the speed he went past….

    Could be the Vulcans trying to initiate first contact with mankind. 😯

    My wee girl is 7 and starting to have doubts about Santa.all dispelled when she saw him flying across the sky. Cheers ISS, that made her night

    That was jolly cool. My.2 lads were so.excited bless them.

    Worked particularly well for my 4 year old as the sky had a red tinge near the ISS so he decided it was Rudolph’s nose!

    Only problem is, he’s only just gone to sleep with all the excitement…

    3 prisoners on my wing had never seen the ISS, so I got them to the door at 17.20 & watched it go over, they all shook my hand & said it was brilliant that I’d bothered!

    yup same here, the lads just 4, even said he could hear Reindeers, moments like these 8)

    Think I’ve gone slightly deaf listening to 7 kids hollering at Santa as he flew by.
    The eldest at 7 was suitably convinced he was real, once I’d showed her a video of a shooting star to prove it wasn’t that. πŸ˜€

    **** me essel.
    That’s a propper nice thing to do.

    Cheers! Me & Chappers (another screw) stood there & watched with the cons.
    Not all screws are Mr Mckay & not all cons are Orrible. (just most of them)

    As officially the biggest bah humbug there is these stories are giving me some sort of warm glow.

    It stayed in view with us for about 2 mins and was off round the world again. Even Mini TJ, who’s 11 was impressed with it. Must admit I should have tried to chase it with my telescope, but would have been difficult ……….. Even though he doesn’t believe, he has been watching Norad all day and is buzzing and just gone to bed ! Great fun with the kids. Love it.

    Amazing for kids to think they saw Santa flying across the sky!

    Amazing for Adults to think they saw a small metal can, with 6 people in it, flying across the sky at 7.5 Kilometers per second, 431Km away in orbit around our planet, and we, the human race, learnt how to put them there in something less than 100 years!!

    On the subject of flying Santa, do try get to see ‘Rare Export’, a Finnish film which gives a unique take on the activities of Santa and his elves…………

    The adults here were more excited than the kids! But it did help get them to bed far more easily than normal when we told them he hadn’t stopped because they were still awake…

    Yeah, warton junior loved that. He definitely saw Rudolph at the front. Then went straight to sleep, even telling us he didn’t want a story as he wanted to be asleep so Santa would visit πŸ™‚

    He was up at 5 though πŸ™

    He’s just gone back over. I’m hoping that he was dropping off the bikes he forgot to leave last night……
