I wasn't aware that NASA could play "hot potato" with the entire world. Seems like this may be a bit to dangerous for kids though.... I think I will dub it playing "earth potato" and will stick it next to the lawn darts!!

I see this more like Russian Roulette meets Twister......especially me being on the east coast and everythin'.

I tell ya, I didn't like NASA then and I like them even less now.

I doubt it. It will be very far north of you even if re-entry does occur over North America.
The good new is it won't fall on you.


and there was I hoping to get up on the roof to watch the fireworks..although it is due to pass over Canada tonight...last night it just was too far North of us although due to it;s height band my telescope not being of the posh variety it would have been EPIC FAIL!

Oh well onto Yoo hoo 55 next week I suppose. Or is it Elenin ah yes....yawn!

Thanks Phage,
I really need a new roof, but would not want my family or pets home when it hit. I figured my insurance would say it was an act of God and wouldn't pay.

Thanks for info.

I need a new roof too...and I was just hopin it would skim it off so I could get a new one from NASA...anyways it is due to pass over us shortly here so I'll go check the tracking site. It went over BC last night but was a lil too far North and too high for me to see it with my crap telescope...oh well!...As I said to Phage there is a vid up in one of the New Topic threads by a French guy and it's really good go check it out!
Peace

I'm in Missouri and I think I will go outside in about an hour and see if I can see it. I think it should be somewhere over here in the next hour or two.

Let's face it Phage. Only after it comes down will NASA know where it landed. And then, maybe.

Getting very close now. 4 hour window.

Update #11
Fri, 23 Sep 2011 01:30:46 PM GMT-1000

As of 7 p.m. EDT on Sept. 23, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 90 miles by 95 miles (145 km by 150 km). Re-entry is expected between 11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and 3 a.m., Sept. 24, Eastern Daylight Time (3 a.m. to 7 a.m. GMT). During that time period, the satellite will be passing over Canada, Africa and Australia, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety is very remote.

The NASA update good looking out phage.
Still keeping the fingers crossed atleast get to see a show.
It will still be passing over North America during the time period.
People in Canada might get to see it. It is probable

It depends where it re-enters. The debris may be able to be tracked.
But as has been the case from the time it was first known the satellite would be re-entering, the chances are greatest that it will fall into the ocean. In fact, the odds are even greater now that it will do so.

So you just left the part about the oceans out as an oversight. Right?
