what happened to the pass predictions that were on this page?

Dear ISSfanclub system admins, what happened to the awesome ability this site had to track passes from your location?
it is gone :-(
why ?

I apologize, I never noticed

I apologize, I never noticed there was a bug that I worked around for now. Still need to fix it properly.
This site needs to be rebuilt for scratch but I don't have the time anymore...

Re: pass predictions

It works fine here using Internet Explorer 11 with Windows 10.

It does not work with other browsers which only shows the map and position of the ISS with no times etc. in Edge, Chrome and Firefox.

website pass predictions

I remember a while back that several sites that provided on-line pass predictions were told not to by some gov't agency. Maybe somebody has more info on it? Something to do with security classification?

no way - the pass predictions

no way - the pass predictions are just math equations using the kepler elements which are publicly available.

WE know what they are, but...

Evidently the gov't watchdogs are worried that evildoers will be able to penetrate our top secret comms with ISS and bring down the Trump administration.
