I'd say the server is overloaded with people watching it now.

The latest:


UPDATE #8 - As of 7 a.m. EDT Sept. 22, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 115 mi by 120 mi (185 km by 195 km). Re-entry is expected sometime during the afternoon of Sept. 23, Eastern Daylight Time. The satellite will not be passing over North America during that time period. It is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry with any more certainty, but predictions will become more refined in the next 24 to 36 hours.

It will land on me right when I finally figure out the meaning of life. I love everyone's predictions. Very cool.

Looks like it'll crash in my back yard then, im guessing central europe to middle east to indian ocean if lucky? If not, then perhaps a nazi ufo

According to InfoSatellites...the UARS is actually climbing in altitude.

.51 miles every minute about..

In the last few hours there have been posts from people concerned that the tracking sites are failing due to user overload.
This is only going to get worse 24 hours from now when the thing is really due for reentry.

Solution: Calculate the orbital position using software on your own computer, because thats all those "tracking" sites do. They dont have a bunch of radar antennas looking up into the sky. They just run some calculations based on the orbital numbers.
You can do that at home.

I've been using a program called Orbitron, but there are quite a lot of different ones.
The numbers describing the orbit of the satellites are Two Line Elements (TLE's). If your software cant update them automatically, they are available from celestrak

maybe they are trying to guide it? Thanks for pointing that out. So if it is climbing what does that mean? Will it reach ground later than expected?

According to this one it just jumped from the coast of Africa to right under Iceland, it did it a few times ..... weird, I wish the other site was working!

Earth isnt a perpect sphere, it bulges out further around the equator, therfore as it approaches the centre of the earth it inivetibly gets closer to the ground, as it moves away further north or south it gets further from the ground.

Earth is shaped as an Oblate Spheroid, like something pressing down on it making it squeeze out in the middle

It means that it is in an elliptical, not circular orbit. Its altitude will increase to a point and then decrease to a point. This will continue to repeat but the lowest level (perigee) will continue to get lower as the atmosphere slows the satellite down. At some point (Friday afternoon) the perigee will be so low that the satellite will encounter too much resistance to stay in orbit. At this point it will re-enter the atmosphere and break up. The smaller pieces will vaporize because of the heat produced by moving through the atmosphere at 17,000 mph. The larger pieces will continue to slow down and plummet to the surface.

Tht is what i noticed too...if this is correct,how can an object over 6 tons climb agaist gravity if as they said is "uncontrolble"???

I missed it is now by Polan this thing sure is weird. I wish orbitran still worked for me it made more sense to me.

The satellite will crash in my house and destroy my stuff and I do not have insurance for such an event. This has been my luck for the past couple of months.
