Things fall (man-made) from orbit on a daily basis. Naturally occurring debris falls into our atmosphere an unknown amount of times per day. This particular instance is nothing but sensationalism and fear-mongering. I followed it because it was a lead story. It seems as though most of the reports I read were almost hoping for someone to get hit (more news) :)

I was following the story because I want to see a damn satellite burn up over my head! I have been under two now, but didn’t see either. (Indoors both times, and I didn’t know about it beforehand.) Was asleep once, and awake for the other. I would have only had to step outside, dang it. But, this one went down far, far away.
