Update #9
Thu, 22 Sep 2011 09:01:35 PM CDT


As of 9:30 p.m. EDT Sept. 22, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 110 mi by 115 mi (175 km by 185 km). Re-entry is possible sometime during the afternoon or early evening 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 hours.

I guess all the time zones are confusing as well. I can only deduce from my perspective here in Canada it could be anytime between 11.00pm tonight and 7.00am in the morning Pacific Time.

I am disappointed as said before that NASA hasn't delivered it's prediction of re-entry...and hope it lands in our vast oceans.....
now I question their commitment and validity of what they put out!

Over Chad at 2400 EST.

Haven't turned off the tracker since I got it to load.


I wanna see where that thing burns up. Though I hope no one gets hurt.

LOL I love this part of that page:


Note: Possible reentry locations lie anywhere along the blue and yellow ground track.




So basically they have NO idea where this thing is going to land!

With any luck, it takes out my apartment without killing or injuring me and I can cash in my insurance.

Next best thing to hitting the lotto IMO.

My first post. Hello All!

I have been following the satellite via this site

www.infosatellites.com...

It is now out over the Indian Ocean. Curiously, I did notice that when I first tracked it South West of tip of Australia the altitude was specified at around 116 when the UARS approached the South West Corner of North America the Altitude had dropped within 20 minutes to 107. As soon as it hit central North America, altitude shot back up to 113 ?? it slid out to the East to the Labrador Sea cut under the West of England into France and made its way down towards the South East corner tip of Africa. The current altitude is 122.83. So the Altitude is rising? it has almost joined up to my original point of tracking and is going now to the southern end of Australia once more.

Can anyone explain or have any idea why the altitude would have dropped so considerably only to rise dramatically as it has?

It is because it orbits the Earth in an elliptical orbit, meaning it isn't always even when it goes around. I was watching it last night and was wondering the same thing! It hasn't started to fall yet, so it will continue it's elliptical orbit till it gets too far down to keep doing it and it'll just crash.

It's in a semi-elliptical orbit, hence loosing and gaining altitude.

Probably bumping on the atmosphere...also taking into consideration trajectory, angle of descent...maybe that's why NASA keeping quiet...it's not controlled as in Space missions...don't want to sound patrionising in any way but basically it has a sort of orbit but will be slightly unpredictable due to it's velocity etc...many scientific things factoring in....but not wildly out of perspective...I just think NASA's calculations might be somewhat closer than the 24 hrs promised...

Ah, I see now, I did wonder about the dramatic increase of altitude thanks for letting me know. I wonder now if it is going to follow the exact same path as it has gone 'full circle' in an undulating effect. It will be interesting to see if it follows the same route or how much it differs as I am assuming it might go around again until it runs out of steam. Now I have started to track it, its difficult to look away!!
