Perhaps they don't want to give the location too quickly *especially if the debris is near population* so that people don't flock to the area to try to grab a piece?

How true.


Except that it was a simulation, a prediction of sorts of the orbital path of the satellite, but this was mentioned many times before.


OH, so there is no sat falling from space, IT WAS A SIMULATION, as you say, A PREDICTION. Why was this on the news then?


Ugh...

Never mind.

Here I am, alone with my Butterfly Net and waiting... if this thing comes down near
here, then I'm gonna grab as it flys over.
It's a good net... I've reinforced the 'neck-area' with electrician's tape.

Edit: Oh... and I have oven-mitts on because it'll be quite warm.

I'm confused. I thought there were satellites with cameras strong enough to read license plates. Why can no one "see" a 6 ton flaming object?

Reuters news agency reports indicate that people in the western Nigerian town of Ogbomosho saw shooting stars in the pre-dawn sky at approx. 5:45 am on Sept 24 that has tentatively been identified as the likely debris from the UARS satellite. But Reuters has not posted this information on the web. Other reports are indicating it has come down in northern Quebec, Canada.


Wikipedia

I looked up a bit, the sky was nice and clear, there were so many trees around that I did not have a very big view...at about 10:15 PM here in East Texas I had seen a nice shooting star...I suppose...thirty minutes later one near the same place, just didn't last as long!


In that case it would have fell over the Atalantic, and the Canadians are full of $%$%

Well this is totally lame. I'm going with that they don't want to tell people where it landed yet, so maybe they can retrieve the pieces first, and avoid having people go pick them up themselves. I don't see why else they wouldn't be telling us where it landed. I mean if it was in the Ocean, then they probably would have told us right away?

Their last two tweets on twitter involved this very subject...

@LennarddeHeer Any pieces of #UARS found are still the property of the country that made it. You'll have to give 'em back to U.S.

So that's my guess anyways.

First, simUlation, second, the website that you are "watching" the satellite orbit the Earth, is a...wait for it...simulation. Not the actual satellite, just the website graphic of the satellite and the curvy lines it follows.

Welp. Thats it then.
Awww, I feel sad like I did when YouTube pulled the little dead alien chicken video from Siberia.
That was fun while it lasted. We need more impactors.
Maybe we could take up a collection, hack into the satellite belt and crash some of those together up there.
Then we could all get together again and wonder who's gonna get it.
