Not sure how accurate this would be but in this 'simulation' UARS is just approaching New Zealand?


That's the one I've been using because someone told me that N2YO.com is just going on an automated prediction..
That puts it over the very northern tip of New Zealand right now... then sea.. lots of sea..

Update #12
Sat, 24 Sep 2011 03:50:07 AM GMT

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.

Cheers for the update.. NASA said 4.45am, GMT, and it's 4.55am GMT now... I was about to ring up and complain..



PHAAAAAAGE Please be a darling and help a noob...
Should I be watching spaceflight now, or N2YO.com??
Because they both look very different!
*confused*
Thank you in advance...

I'm using Heavens Above.

I'm gonna judge when it crashes by my battery percentage on my iPad. It's at 34% now and I predict a crash at 23%. any takers?

Heavens Above and Spacefight Now seem to match, I'm running them both right now.

Looks like it's going to at least make it to Canada.

Hi - I used the Infosatellite site but it crashed and so this is the one I have been watching. Not quite the same tracking info (no altitudes etc) but it gives you a good sense of whats going on visually from birds eye view.

Looking now, its just a whole pool of sea !
