I was on the site stellarium when I started checking out satellites. One that flew by the screen was named UARS.
I thought this satellite reentered the orbit last September 2011. Does anybody have an idea what this is?

Since that's a planetarium program, not an observatory, they just haven't updated their database with the fact that the thing no longer exists, so it's still being simulated as flying around as before.

Not sure why that's not completely obvious.

Have you bothered to contact them and asked them to update their database?
