Also, earlier lights reported over Edmonton would make sense as the first pieces started to come off. Pretty certain this is accurate.

Northern Quebec's pretty empty (but not so empty that pieces can't be recovered). Can't wait till morning!

Several independent reports coming in from southern Alberta about a debris trail in the sky moving rapidly.

That is a rather long window for splashing in the Pacific. I was up in the night so followed the activities on Twitter. IamUARS was great fun. Really expected more from NASA; NASA_Watch; and other sites, but alas little real information has yet been released.

If it did indeed come down over the Pacific, there aren't a lot of eyes out there...of any kind.

Of course the breathless reports are coming in all over from what were probably common meteors. Due to the media storm, people who have never looked at the sky before were peering upward, and for last night, everything wasn't a UFO, it was a UARS smile.gif

That's because little information exists. What do you want NASA to do - make stuff up?

They reported all the info they had as quickly as can be expected.

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

True, but most don't communicate with Space Command or NASA smile.gif

I wasn't trying to give NASA a hard time, just thought other US agencies who track space objects and threats would have passed NASA some information. We have spy satellites that would have picke up the IR signal of reentry etc. It will probably just take a while for this information to get declassified and released.

Update #16
‎Today, ‎September ‎24, ‎2011, ‏‎37 minutes ago
NASA’s decommissioned Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite fell back to Earth between 11:23 p.m. EDT Friday, Sept. 23 and 1:09 a.m. EDT Sept. 24. The Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California said the satellite entered the atmosphere over the North Pacific Ocean, off the west coast of the United States. The precise re-entry time and location of any debris impacts are still being determined. NASA is not aware of any reports of injury or property damage.

This is your source for official information on the re-entry of UARS. All information posted here has been verified with a government agency or law enforcement.

NASA will conduct a media telecon at 2 p.m. ET to discuss the re-entry. The telecon will be streamed live at www.nasa.gov/newsaudio.

Map of Final orbit with most likely point where center of debris track would be at 10 km height.
