US-193 Scheduled for Destruction


The US-193 satellite has been officially scheduled for destruction on February 21st, 2008 at 03:30 UTC. The satellite will be shot down near Hawaii, in restricted airspace over the Pacific Ocean to avoid debris reaching land. US-193 had lost power and communications a while ago, and its orbit has been decaying since. So if you're on the West coast, keep an eye out at this time. More information on US-193's destruction is available here. Here on the East coast, we probably won't be able to see the event, but we might get to see the debris field. Also notice that the destruction of this satellite falls in line with the upcoming lunar eclipse. Probably a pure coincidence, though.

Clear skies!

She told me she just didn’t see herself as a leader and didn’t realize that other people at the school saw her as a leader as well
