Probs cause i am in a bad mood.

Hope it doesn't hurt anyone though.

The satellite has not slowed due to a solar flare. It is not slowing as much as was expected.

The estimated time of re-entry has been extended because its rate of descent has decreased from prior. Probably because its attitude (orientation to direction of motion) has changed.

According to the new update All the information is here
www.abovetopsecret.com...&addstar=1&on=12400676#pid12400676

At 10am this morning,
we have between 12-18hours for an impact.
According to the new NASA update
It will hit between 10pm and 4am tonight into tom. morning. EASTERN time.

There was a solar flair slowing down the satellite but
it is not having much of an effect now on it as phage has just said.

Will I be able to view it from Massachusetts at 19:53 EST ? I'm not sure I'm understanding the information on the tracker site.

I can see something in the sky to the south east, way too bright to be a star, been there for at least an hour and I can see it through a thin layer of clouds. I dont know how to find out where it should be now. Would UARS have heated up already?

I am in east of england so I would put it way off the last report of over the south pacific, but it has been a few hours

That is not a live camera.
It is using the same orbital elements as all the other "live" trackers.

Here for example:

How far off do you think it is from where the satellite actually is?

Yes, I know that, just providing the link so people can watch it

Well i tried using google skymap on my phone. that seemed to show different every time i pointed it, not very accurate but it looks to be near where jupiter should be. I am pretty sure I cannot see jupiter through cloud cover.

Those guides show its calculated orbit I think, it has gone off course from that now I think. They say its on the opposite side of the world, if it is not UARS then WTF can I see thats bright enough to see through cloud cover, it is the only light I can see in the sky.

The only real way to know where it is, is to look at it either by radar (such as NORAD use) or by people on the ground looking at the sky (as you can do if you're in the right place*).

Similarly, when it does come down a few hours from now, not a single one of the tracking websites will actually know, or show you.
You will only find out by a NASA announcement, or news from people on the ground who saw it. Keep an eye on twitter for such news.


* The right place to be will be the middle of the Atlantic ocean half an hour from now. or the India/Indonesia region an hour from now.
Looks like about 2 hours from now, Miami will be a good place to watch it fly overhead. This will provide confirmation that it is still orbiting.
