Here’s to a safe splashdown before Saturday evening worse case. We’re flying to Europe and would be crossing a flight path enroute.

That would make a heck of a video from an airliner window,, debris flying by... but I don’t want to be the one making it and we don’t need any new ruins in Europe, that would be a mess.

This one is for the orbit starting in Mid-Pacific at 1:30pm Eastern...

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.

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.)
