And here is the orbit track starting Mid-Pacific at 6:45pm Eastern...

These are the tracks for tomorrow afternoon/early evening after noon Eastern time. IF NASA is correct in when they expect it it to come down, it'll be from one of these 4 tracks.

Kinda like a floater, spiraling around the bowl. Moving quick, but not movin’ down too fast.

Why didn’t we blow it up? Missile shot?

It would create more projectiles that would endanger other satellites and the ISS....................

Thanks for clarifying that for everyone else. What I LEFT OUT in my earlier post was that it would be mostly over the oceans and Russia during the ESTIMATED RE-ENTRY PERIOD.

I realized I had left that out, and was mis-communicating when FR went dead. I just got back on, so I am now responding.

Pleeze! Pleeze! If there’s a God in heaven, let it be Flo!!

Surely not Flo!

One of the ads shows Flo apparently making out on a picnic. But it's only been shown a couple of times. Only ad in the whole Flo bunch that doesn't put your eyes out.

Thanks. I caught my misstatement but FR went down for a few minutes.

Others have posted more visuals and better explanations, so my work is done anyway.

Flo is the anti-Christ.

You think that red stuff is lipstick? Boy, has she got you bamboozled.

Why do you think there have been like ten thousand vampire movies lately?

I gotta get to the store, I need more garlic...

Except for continental land masses, oceans have no natural boundaries between them. The Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans reach to the Antarctic land mass. That area is called the Southern Ocean. There is a circumnavigating current and wind which gives the Southern ocean its characteristic. Read the accounts of the clipper ships or more recent around-the-world yacht races for descriptions of the wind and waves which circle the world without barriers.

Meanwhile, Al Gore is cringing in the deepest fallout shelter he can find, curled up in a little ball while sobbing, saying that the satellite is going to destroy the Earth, killing everyone, and me! It’s going to kill me! (sob!)

You've got his number...

Latest UARS UPDATE:

NASA’s UARS satellite is making its last orbits around Earth. Orbital elements just published by US Strategic Command suggest that re-entry could occur a little later than previously expected. “For now, it looks like 00:00 - 04:00 UTC on Sept. 24,” says satellite tracking expert Ted Molczan, “but it could well happen even later. UARS will pass over North America and Europe several times during this period, but it will spend most of its time over oceans and sparsely populated land.”

(I’ll do some calcutaing and get those orbits posted soon.)
