Apparently NASA has confirmed
it, but I'm
having trouble finding any reference on the NASA website. This seems legit though.
For one, there is no longer an orbit available for the Russian sat from NASA's
, assuming there was one there before (likely IMO).
All ATSers, especially those living along the predicted tracks of the satellites should stay alert for re-entering junk, since most will keep going in
generally the same direction as it was before the collision.
I still don't know which Iridium was involved, so we can't track that right now, but you can still track Cosmos 2251 via
if you enter you location, and then click where it says Select a satellite from the
. Here is what the the track looks like at the time of writing:
It should be approaching/over the US by the time I submit this post!
