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.


Problem in there itself.... Christmas Island is in the INDIAN OCEAN between Australia and Indonesia some 9,000km (5,500mi ) from American Samoa

Then why on earth didn't they just say Kiribati (ie the country) ? They didn't call American Samoa by the island name of Tutuila Island - that's one sure way to confuse the Australians....
