Being a huge six tonne satellite (the size of a bus) there is a 1 in 3200 chance it will hit land andmay actually injure or harm people should it impact in a populated area. Lets hope this does not happen.
Actual video of a pass of UARS satellite 8/9 days before atmospheric reentry, at an altitude of only 250km, taken from the ground with a 14" telescope:
News on the satellite:
Experts say there is a one-in-3,200 risk of the six-ton space junk hitting someone.
However, its speed means that there will only be a 20-minute warning before it strikes.
Debris is expected to scatter across a 500-mile area, with the biggest chunk weighing 300lb, the weight of a large refridgerator.
The anticipated landing area spans cities as far north as Edinburgh and as far south as Cape Horn, on the southern coast of South America
