TS Kelso has suggested that reentry for satellites normnally happens at the lowest part of the orbit (perigee).
In this case, it is when the satellite is near New Zealand.

So it may have reentered 45 minutes ago, or it may enter 45 minutes from now.

Edit - tweet from NASA a few minutes ago...

It's possible that #UARS is down by now. (Everybody OK out there?) We're waiting for confirmation from US Strategic Command

Most likely unrelated, but we just heard a loud explosion like noise outside of our house a few minutes ago, Mid-Missouri. Didn't see anything though, no clue what it is yet. But kinda of scary since I'm following this thread and stuff.

My bet it is still up there. There were reports of a fireball in Seattle and also Vancouver, neither one of those people would come back up again on the BB when queried , so must be BS.

I would think NASA would have radar data telling them it is still a viable object.

Do the TLE's have a timestamp?


12:28 A.M. today's date on TLE. Alt now at 138km on the descending node. Just crossed into Northwest corner of African continent (assuming it's still up).

I didn't see anything and I had/have a clear view of the entire region pretty much, facing Mount Baker.

It (perhaps) passed over Seattle, and then across Canada.

Whatever it was, it's gone now.

I have some high-powered binoculars, and it had a definite appearance of something with a trailing bright tail.

Doesnt load properly for me.
What would probably be the map, in the middle of the screen, is for me just a black square.
And I cant see UARS is selectable from the list of satellites.

Is it too late to register my guess?

It's selectable from the drop down in the middle, not the left hand side bar.

Update #13
Friday, September 23, 2011 6:55 PMAs of 10:30 p.m. EDT on Sept. 23, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 85 miles by 90 miles (135 km by 140 km). Re-entry was expected between 11:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and 12:45 a.m., Sept. 24, Eastern Daylight Time (3:45 a.m. to 4:45 a.m. GMT). During that time period, the satellite was passing over Canada and Africa, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety was very remote. NASA is working to confirm the re-entry location and time and will provide an update shortly.
