No hoax: NASA says satellite fell in South Pacific


www.msnbc.msn.com

After days of seeming uncertainty, official satellite-watchers announced Tuesday that a dead NASA satellite broke up over the South Pacific, about as far away from large land masses as you can get.

NASA said the U.S. Air Force calculated that the satellite entered Earth's atmosphere generally above American Samoa at midnight ET Friday. Pieces of it started hitting the water another 300 miles (480 kilometers) to the northeast, southwest of Christmas Island.

So after videos and comments and MSM saying this sucker went down off the Northwest coast of the US

They are back tracking and saying now and saying it went down in in South Pacific.

If that was the case what was it that people filmed in the Northwest?

Here is a video of NBC’s Brian Williams reporting that it went down in the northwest...

Hmmmm, alot of hardware appears to have gone down in the Pacific of late!

If anything went down in the South Pacific many of us Australians and Kiwis would have seen it; not buying it.

Hmmmmm...

Makes me think about the fireball that killed someone and injured 8 in another country.

What was that supposed to be then?

Something is wrong here....

I heard something fell into the Med.... I wonder what the hell that was, if it wasnt the falling satellite!? What a staggeringly strange circumstance!

I don't get it....why would they lie about where a dead satellite had fallen to? My guess...well put it this way they are doing their best at staging some false flags would be my guess.

Can anyone tell me where I can find the last course of the satellite? NASA shows the tail end. But I'm wondering if there is a more detailed map with the position of the satellite over the last few orbits and the approximate times.

Most of hte "MSM" reports were nonsense in the first place, and clear evidence that they'll accept rubbish stories from every tom, dick & harry who claims to have seen something whether there's decent evidence to back it up or not.

Any idea the MSM is under anyone's control is put to rest by this saga!


And there's a freakin' lot more of the South Pacific than just New Zealand and Australia! The story says it came into the atmosphere over Samoa & fell in a 800km span starting 500km further along - nowhere neat Aus or NZ!

Sheesh!

Given the how large the Pacific is, is anyone seriously surprised??? If you gave me 3:1 odds, I would have totally bet that satellite would crash into the pacific because it covers 35% of the planet

Sadly, the re-entry would not have been seen from Australia or New Zealand-- it entered the atmosphere a thousand miles from either-- far too low on the horizon to be seen-- probably below the horizon.

Buenos Aires is no where near the satellite's path on any of the final orbits.

Here is what is on the NASA site, now:


The Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California has determined the satellite entered the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean at 14.1 degrees south latitude and 189.8 degrees east longitude (170.2 west longitude). This location is over a broad, remote ocean area in the Southern Hemisphere, far from any major land mass. The debris field is located between 300 miles and 800 miles downrange, or generally northeast of the re-entry point. NASA is not aware of any possible debris sightings from this geographic area.

there is still more $hit falling form the sky, yesterday it was Texas and Argentina, today in California about 3 hours ago

Why am I not surprised it's a jet contrail.

Still doesn't explain what it was these people in the northwest US/ Canada recorded. Would they be able to see the debris as it fell that far away? Why didn't anyone in Mexico or southern CA?

No they wouldn't be able to see it.
All of the videos of the "re-entry" are hoaxes or, to be charitable, misidentifications.

I swear I saw the satellite at 8:44pm CST over Kenora Canada. I saw a flaring satellite. If this is true, then it was on it's last orbit. However, NASA only shows part of the it's last postions. I have not found any detailed informaion on it's exactly location while it was over Central Canada to confirm the timing.

Oh well.

On the night it happened, my buddy said he saw something re-entering the sky above our city (in southern BC, Canada) and burn up under the cloud cover. He didn't know about the satellite story until I told him that it was coming down at any time. It probably was just a fragment of the satellite since it broke apart and burnt up quickly, but it sure as hell wasn't over the South Pacific.

EDIT: Robin Marks-
Interesting post! My buddy said he saw it sometime after 8PM PST (I missed it since I was indoors at the time).

If we can have a dead bin Laden in one ocean with no proof, it only makes sense to have a dead satellite in another ocean with no proof.

You have one mission and that's to insight me, isn't it?


That cork screw plume of white vaporous substance spiraling downwards to the Earth is a contrail from a plane?

Unless this was situated over some AirShow and another stunt plane crashed, I gotta say, you come up with some off-the-wall debunks!
