    I hope this time they wont try their missiles on it, last time they did it we got wave of space trash crapping satellites in low orbit.

    It had been predicted to reenter last year. I haven't found any new predictions of it's return, but you can track it's altitude and track on that web site along with other orbiting objects.

    It's coming down less than 24hrs.

    I think less than 12hrs!

    The link in the first post of the thread has tracking for space junk reentries. Something coming back in 40 minutes and something in about 6 hours.

    from 130 miles to 122 miles in less than 10 min....! (TianGong 1 satellite I am watching)

    Too bad the sun just came up for me. Boooo.

    It is flying right for me in next 20min or so. From Mexico to just over my head.

    Stupid thing just gained altitude and went UP a few miles? Don't understand how that is possible?

    The Sun or Moon pulls it back up?
