During that time period, the satellite will be passing over Canada, Africa and Australia, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety is very remote.

140km is the magic number, at least thats how it works in orbiter (a simulator.)

what I mean more specifically however, is atmospheric drag should eventually bring it down, unless it bounces again which each pass seams more unlikely, but not impossible.

Hi all,

It's just coming up to the UK now apparently so I'll go outside and have a look, maybe I'm a bit too far south though.

It makes a pass apparently every 90 mins so there is a chance this is its penultimate pass of the UK. But yes look up! North west to South east remember


PS, the further south you are - originally - the better!

The real problem for you will be that, being the middle of the night there, the lack of sunlight shining on the satellite to illuminate it.

Viewing works best just after sunset, or just before sunrise.
That will be the middle of the indian ocean 25 minutes from now.

All news stations have reported it would be visible in daylight, providing it's burning up or crashing into Milton Keynes.

Yeah popped out but it's the middle of the night and cloudy, still worth a look tho.

So, it will maybe only pass the UK once more?
I will stay online anyway to track this, it's pretty cool :-)

the same thought occured but I didn't see anything, except its the clearest night in years, you can see the arm of the milky way and jupiter looks like a massive star where im at =D

dude check out the worldmap on the weatherspace link, the entire world is watching this ^_^

ed: word on the street is the uk will have yet another close pass next orbit, if it hasn't re-entered by then, but its got a long ways to go yet

Yeah this is pretty cool isn't it?

Looks like some parts of America are going to get a look now, at sunset too.
It also seems the UK is going to get another pass, I'm waiting for...

www.heavens-above.com...

...to have it's future orbit for the next pass on :-) just in case.

Next UK pass...
Rises in the Northwest at 02:33 then overhead at 02:36, and exiting to the Southeast 02:39 (times set for Manchester.)

It is not descending yet ascending at this point. Is it stuck in some sort of gravtational pull? Will it ever come down?
