Eyes To The Skies Because NASA Satellite Falls to Earth - Probably Sept 23rd ......Somewhere !

The bus-sized, 6.5-ton UARS satellite can fall anywhere between 57 degrees north latitude to 57 degrees south latitude where most of Earth's humanity lives. NASA and the U.S. Strategic Command at California's Vandenberg AFB say they can't give satellite's point of impact within about 6,000 miles (10,000 km) until only two hours before re-entry due to its unpredictable nature.

As of Sept. 21, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 120 mi by 130 mi
(195 km by 210 km). Re-entry is expected Friday, September 23rd, North America time. It is still too early to predict when and where the many pieces of the UARS satellite will fall on Earth.
UARS was originally launched in 1991 and was decommissioned in 2005 after completing its mission. The satellite measured chemical compounds found in the ozone layer, stratospheric wind and temperatures and solar energy reaching Earth. Graphic by NA
