Thanks for the info.
I'll go outside and look again at that time, I'm down in Bournemouth and according to the maps it's going to be pretty much overhead here on next UK pass.

Those are not real time. They use the orbital elements to calculate the satellite's location. Since the orbital elements are changing rapidly now the calculations are not reliable.

The only source of true real time information is NORAD and they aren't giving that to any civilian websites.

There are no "real time" links.
All these websites are just running mathematical computational models.

so pretty much we should just assume it's a little further up the globe than it actually is on the map

ah i see

is there a more accurate (time) feed available anywhere?

Star for your knowlage btw

Well hey. If its making a pass and someone is out there seeing this thing, that means it's there. Heavens-Above and Orbitron were right 2 passes ago so we still have ground obs seeing this thing. In another 36 minutes (weather permitting) i'm heading out again to see UARS heading directly overhead.

Eyes on the ground are much better than NORAD, given from 'last sightings' we can then draw up a accurate picture of its final location & breakup point, even if noone see's it.

Then why did I see a satelitte like object yesterday night at the same time it was on the map?

I know it was not a plane.
At 9:30 pm I will go outside to see if UARS is passing over. If it is not then I will know not trust the tracking. What woul be the point of the tracking if not to track it's path?

Not that's available to us.

As far as where the satellite is over the Earth, you can use the trackers to get a pretty good idea but it won't be exact, the timing will be off. Forget the altitude values though, those are pretty useless at this point.

www.n2yo.com...

according to n2yo its now below Australia
altitude 106 miles

I had a hard time getting this to load, once there, it will freeze for a bit, do not refresh, it will start up again.

Well I'm not going to be too scientific about it. I've had the number combination of 678 stuck in my head recently so I am predicting area code 678. Atlanta, Georgia area

See the post above.
Also, yesterday the trackers would have been more accurate because the satellite was not being affected as much by the atmosphere.

Orbitron and spaceflightnow not matching up. spacefightnow seems behind.

I'm still going with my first
choice of Atlantic ocean, no
more than 500 miles off US
east coast.

Beware to those on the sea!!

The best way to check the accuracy of these tracking sites is to go outside and see the satellite for yourself.

Mexico, Texas, 10 - 15 minutes from now.

Let us know if the predictions match the observations.

Yikes it looks like I am the more likely reentry area. This also backs up the simulations I ran earlier. I am in KC mo right in the middle of the thicker lines.

That is not the latest update.
The story is from:

It is inaccurate.

The re-entry window "opens" in about 3 hours.
It is 4 hours wide.
