i've also been thinking about that, why risking damage and lifes if they can (or cannot??) shoot it down over the ocean?

the spaceflight website makes it look like a knitting pattern...as it's tracked it's previous orbits!...it seems to be all over the place...but i am relying on this site as for me its been the most stable x

I believe UARS will make impact
somewhere in the pacific ocean near Hawaii
With a possible sighting in California. Oregan or Idaho
if it does not break up
it will keep going east.
This will happen between 11:30pm and 1:00am EAST here is the path

At approx. 11:00pm EST 9/23 UARS is over Africa

At approx. 11:30pm EST 9/23 UARS is south of Australia IMPACT between here

At approx. 12:08am EST 9/24 UARS is approaching/over North America/Canada IMPACT between here

At approx. 12:16am EST 9/24 IMPACT ZONE

At approx. 12:31am EST 9/24 UARS approaching Africa IMPACT ZONE

At approx. 1:05am EST 9/24 UARS north of Antartica IMPACT ZONE

At approx. 1:35am EST 9/24 UARS over the Pacific Ocean IMPACT ZONE

At approx 1:50am EST 9/24 UARS over North America/Canada IMPACT ZONE

Here's a video showing the timeframe NASA has just given in it's last update.


As 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 is 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 will be passing over Canada and Africa, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety is very remote.

prob for so many reasons...poss contamination...poss debris scattering so wide...who knows...this has been questioned on many threads today...and it is moving very fast

yea well the sky over Rio Rancho is pretty busy tonight. there sits Jupiter to the east...which is not unusual, but the hovering blinking light was. i came and got the wife so she could see it and there it sat. we came in, i got a cigarette, and no sooner did i come out, it was gone.

you'd be surprised what you see out in the desert sky. you can see every constellation with ease. the big dipper is gigantic out here. and you see more than a fair number of craft you can't readily identify. but you see lots of planes too and you know them because they make noise.

those two whatever they were i spoke on in my other posts have got to be the most amazing things i've ever seen...and trust me, i've seen alot.

Keep look out, because if it keeps it's new path now the AUSTRAILIANS should see it and later on WASHINGTON state and CANADA.

Maybe I'm just being a big selfish wretch... but I'd kind of like it to come down close to a populated area (safely) because otherwise how are we going to get footage of it?
If it goes down off the coast, then youtube will be my next stop..

Why don't they just shoot the damn thing with a missile, while over the ocean? Why risk having it it land? If NASA can't bring down satellites safely, we'll have problems.


the problem with shooting it down is that instead of having a couple of dozen larger pieces, then we would potentially be dealing with 1000s of smaller pieces (like bullets raining down from above). I'd rather take my chances with the big pieces.

Although, I'll admit, once it hits the atmosphere, this would be an excellent test of our missile interception capabilities....you know...the one's we allegedly don't have. A brilliant explosion in the upper atmosphere would "sell out" that technology; although, it would give our enemies something to think twice about.

Except that it is 1.30pm on the east coast of Australia and coming in cloudy... damn!

Doubtful we'll be able to see it unless it breaks up overhead.

The satellite is in day light
PERIOD: 89m


n2yo is the site i've been tracking it on all day.
It's been pretty accurate from what I can tell.

It seems to jump around from time to time from what i've seen, but it does sort itself out
shortly after, or with a refresh.

Another note, the site may take a few refreshes to actually load. Seems as the servers are busy.

So what does that make... 419,040 mph?


i don't know the math equations for , i don't know, but it is accelerating.
