I'm looking at the satflare site right now and it's saying the rocket booster is over Antarctica (07:15 UTC, February 27, 2013) at an altitude of 165.2km which is nearly 25km higher than your screenshot suggests it should be at right now.

*edit- when crossing over Australia a bit ago it was > 158km in altitude so unless it sheds that 25km....

Same satflare site has the altitude at ~152.km over Buenos Aires (07:26 UTC February 27 2013).

Might have a few more orbits to go.


But what's confusing is the report here saying a flash was seen at 07:54 UTC, which is in the future.


Okay disregard the above confusing comment- the report was from Oct 06, 2012.

It has an elliptical orbit.

It will rise and fall in altitude as it orbits,

Obviously eventually it will just be falling.

I get that.
Also variations in the shape of the Earth will affect the mean altitude.

My point was that the software has the altitude a bit lower than the site reports. But it's closer to correct now with the site reporting ~143 over Venezuela and the software calling 137.

With Buenos Aires being comparable latitude as Australia, it did drop about 6km in one-half orbit.

Strictly speaking, orbiting is falling: it just keeps missing the surface.


*edit- If it makes it two more orbits it'll passing almost directly overhead.

Over Dominican Republic it started climbing in altitude again.

I don't have a camera anyway.

Why is this space junk newsworthy ... I mean, don't boosters drop back everyday? I don't know the back story on this piece that makes it so special. Thanks!

In my defense, I'm bored.


And if the rate of descent continues as it has, and it survives two more orbits, I might get a good light show.

That's cool


I thought the OP might tell us why this piece of hazardous waste falling from the sky was more special than the rest of the waste that rains down everyday.

I like the back story sometimes.

No problem. Watching anyway, even without the storyline.


It's going just East of me if it doesn't die before it gets here.

Pity I can't do a screenshot of the sky with my computer. Better yet, one day we will be able to U2U a loaner camera to each other.

Well, it's passed over Antarctica again and is only 149km in altitude, which is a 16km drop since the last pass.
Looks like it'll be in the 130's when it crosses north America.

Around 135km relevant to Buenos Aires latitude at the next orbit for a drop of 17km.

It's 4AM EST now - little turkey is running late.

It will go just East of me soon now and I can't even see stars well! (I see a whole line of dots, or a triangle of dots for each star.) So, there's no use of me standing outside looking for it.

Edit - 350 feet up, clear view, no obstructions, no city lights ... and no eyesight or camera!
Bet you all hate me for that!
