its not falling at 4.7 miles per second it is moving forward at 4.7 miles per second

it just took about 5 mins to fly across from san francisco to winnepeg and its altitude started at 118 miles and now states 120 miles

dont think its falling just yet folks

- or was that superman under it lifting it to a higher orbit

next pass is over hawaii and vancouver

Yep, methinks she bounced off the atmosphere
She will start coming back sooner or later, I don't think she escaped us just yet.

I dont know

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

Nasa doesn't seem to think it will be over North America when the pieces start falling.....whew!

Update #7
Wed, 21 Sep 2011 06:35:54 PM EDT


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.

Any ideas?

It's the location of the Sun

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.....

Can't tell if bouncing... or elliptical orbit
Any thoughts?

No wait, its altitude is going down again... yep, she in fact is bouncing


A riveting little 7 ton satellite is she not?

Why do you people always get the action?
So, cloudy here I can't see nothing.

Plus, it's no where even near here.
