This is a real-time display of the Tiangong-1 ground track which is continuously updated to show the current position. The red area around your location shows where the satellite would be visible above your horizon. The size of this area depends upon the current height of the satellite. You can see the current height above the ground updating in the data table. Re-entry will start when the height drops to roughly 100km. (http://www.heavens-above.com/GroundTrack.aspx)

It's going down fast now Exclamation

If this counter is correct the station is falling at about 1km per minute, from a height of 175km it should take about 3hrs from this moment.

cool

Just noticed it's not falling in a straight line down, it looks like it is bouncing, cause it just went back up a few kilometers. Surprised
No wonder they have no idea where it will end up. Rolling Eyes
Though I do find it odd they can send a satellite to Pluto, calculating the precise path etc.
But for some reason it's difficult to calculate the path for this spacestation. scratch
