And now it is raising again with the same speed/altitude ... this is nonsense

@Maxatoria, thats too funny but could be true.

In fact, does UARS ground track take it over the UK at all ?

I cant seem to find a ground track plot for it.

No, it's just an eliptical orbit and with that simple geometry. Of cause it will 'raise' with the same speed as the orbit just take it further out into space. So it's just further away from earth and thus displayed with a higher height above ground.

Thats not even funny
There has been a massive increase in 'Rag n Bone' men again with at least 1 wagon on our estate every day now, you were lucky if you saw one once every 6 months a few months ago. Just goes to show how hard times are here and everyones suffering. I looked out last night for UARS passing over but the cloud cover didnt allow for any visual sighting. I really hope this lands in the sea somewhere.

you all are funny. Object 21701 has a radar cross section of 17.2. the ISS has a cross section od 266.0. this object is not really that big when you compar it to the other 38000+ other objects in space or even LEO. For example a typical COMM SAT has a cross section of say 35.0+, which is still half as big as the UARS payload.


My job is to support the SSN on a 365/24.7 basis. there is really no need to get worked up over this story. A good 8-12 objects a week decay, some old, some new. this object 21701 is really no different, just another day at the office for this Florida State Seminole.

Just watched it streak across the Louisiana sky. It was moving pretty good, glowing nice and orange (best I could tell) but it wasn't nearly as fast as I had imagined from earlier posts. It was in my line of sight for what seemed like a good 30 seconds or more. Pretty cool.

I really like the name 'UARS'.

Maybe I like it is because I can picture this scenario :-
Once the satellite has crashed and decimated a major city, the guy running the show can turn to his mission planner and say :-

U ARS-ole, you never planned that did you ?

hahaha, good on ditty. we do make a lot of jokes but we consider this a "TIP" object and to be honest, it is not the highest priority object right now. in the past two days the Russians and French (ESA) have had successful launches. Those are what we are worried about.

NASA is not involved in space track what so ever. this is purly a USAF and civi mission.

Am I reading the n2yo map correctly & they're predicting it to land in the Congo? If not, then what's that yellow/orange explosion looking symbol?

I'd like to know why any risk is being taken. Correct me if I'm wrong but haven't millions of tax payers dollars been spent by the US, China and maybe others in developing and testing missiles that shoot down sattelites? I take it the missiles are too expensive to waste on such things like destroying a satelite that could potentialy wipe out a few dozen innocent people when it crashes back to earth. The missiles are only for important things like protecting their little secrets from prying eyes, right?
