its right over Long beach, ca now and passing over looks like vegas/nevada, salt lake city, wyoming montana.. might it make it into and land in Canada
instead of USA? nasa's been saying USA all along..
the 5 day forecast tools shows it flying across Cairns Australia and heading south east towards Christchurch NZ and finishing up in the middle of the
tasman sea in the direction of new zealand about 500km from any land
at 651 am 23 September
I think this info is only based on projected passes over Australia
the day before this it flys over parliament house Canberra

As of 1:30 p.m. EDT Sept. 21, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 120 mi by 130 mi (190 km by 205 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 48 hours.
Did anyone else notice the glowing yellow dot off the west coast of Singapore? (The n2yo website.) If you mouse over it it turns into a hand,
indicating it's clickable, but nothing happens when I click on it.
Well, back up to 131 miles in altitude and I haven't seen the 4.67 change for speed. Perhaps reports of it's early demise were a bit premature. I
suppose skipping off the atmosphere for awhile isn't unusual? Maybe that accounts for the uncertainty right up to the end.....
