70%+ of earth is covered by water. Time for a weekend at the onsen!

Too late now though, as within the latest given parameters, 9:30 this morning is the one pass (out of four) over Japan that fits.

Hold your breath. Fingers crossed that no 1.7 ton mirror lands on your house this morning! :8)

One orbit in 90 minutes? Holy Toledo but that is fast!

PS The 9:30 am Japan overpass was announced on NHK news earlier this morning.

These pesky satellites, coming back down to earth, would be nice if there was a cheaper way to blow them up, into real tiny pieces so we would not have to worry about them coming back to earth and Made In Germany stuff smashing your house, car to shreds right??

If you happen to look up and see your face in a mirror - run!

Apparently very difficult to predict, the scientists are saying.

Now the exact time of impact is being given as just past 11 am, but that means it will no longer be over Japan. Phew!!!

Talk about Russian, ...errr... German roulette!

I was outside with a camera at 9:30 am, wondering if I might win a Darwin Award!

Yeesh! I just hope it won't do any serious damage to anyone!

Playing with words

Most parts of the German "mega-sized rescue package" will burn up during entry into the "European Union" but up to 30 "loans" weighing "€187 billion ($220 billion)" could crash into "Greece"...

Hence, the precise landing spot is definitely Greece or ( if missing the target ) Spain, Portugal, Italy..

It is thought to have come down somewhere in South East Asia http://tinyurl.com/3g9a9yv
