Falling satellite could still provide a show over Midwest


Peru, you’re in the clear. Upper Midwest? Maybe. Africa, we have a problem.

The people tracking the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite now say it will likely land in the middle of Africa tonight (11:16 p.m. CT) , give or take 5 hours and lots of other places on the planet.

Yesterday, it was predicted to drop into the South Pacific off the coast of Peru.

Under this updated forecast, it still could provide a reentry show in the Upper Midwest if it stays aloft for an additional hour or so. That would put it over southern Canada, not that far from the Minnesota border.

All the information is here.
