Jeez Jen, I hope they've allowed for daylight savings and put their "very accurate " Chinese clocks back an hour. Q35

Sorry Jen. I didn't think anyone was interested so I took it down. No point wasting space.

Anyway here are those links again.

The first link is interesting because it has a counter at the top left that displays the total number of objects passing over My Lat/ Lon right now.
You can put your Lat/Lon in if it is not already displayed.....(I think???)

Tiangong should pass in visible range of Dunolly at between (Start) 22:29 at 250 deg AZ  to (End) 22:34 at 59 Deg AZ . between 20 and 56 degrees above the horizon
Won't be visible due to the sun being too low below the horizon, but who knows, it may be lighting up a bit by then??

I spotted it last night momentarily as an orange increasing and fading flash in the WSW about 20 deg above the horizon.

I remember when skylab fell in WA

"In the early hours of the 12th of July, 1979, Skylab crashed on WA's south east coast, scattering debris across the Nullarbor and the eastern goldfields and causing a worldwide sensation."

It has dropped down 10 km approx in the past 24 hours from 179 km to near 161 km and it will likely light up at around 100 to 60 kays alt.

Re-entry is 13 hours 51 mins from now and so flaking around the earth at approx 28000 km/h with position always known it should be pretty easy to get a rough idea of where it is going to re-enter the atmosphere as a disintegrating fire ball...... I am guessing East of the Southern tip of Africa.....Pretty rough guess but.

Looking at it this morning, maybe not anywhere near where I guessed.
More like over China. Maybe it will make it to out over the ocean. In any case the baby is on the way down having descended another 15 km over night to approx 148km and is picking up the pace slightly.
Altitude is changing/ decreasing  by the minute. bounce

Now 130 km...

A bit later. 08:20 02/04/18
Bugger! it is staying up longer than I figured. Shows what i know aye!

Came down near Tahiti.

One site shows it still flying.
Probably a running program and not an actual radar display. Rolling Eyes
