This for some reason, reminded me the scene where the Sirius star light falls in the Truman Show (one of my most favorite movies of all time)

"An airplane in trouble began shedding parts as it flew over sea haven moments ago"

Most of the 1100kg structure will already have burned up in the upper atmosphere, the remaining 200kg will likely fall as harmless fragments so there's not real danger.

Remember when the Australian Government tried to fine NASA for littering when a US Satellite crashed in the outback?

The latest prediction is reentry at 23:33 GMT. The most likely drop zone is Eastern China, but they're giving a plus/minus window of four hours.

Real time tracking: http://www.satview.org/?sat_id=34602U

 

Edit: Maybe not, I've noticed all the tracking sites are showing different things. Unless it is over Australia, South America and the North Pole all at the same time I'd say they're wrong. They aren't actually tracking it in real time though, they just take the latest data and then try and predict where it's going to be.

Now East of Hudson Bay heading North over the pole.

Reentry: 11 Nov 2013
Time: 03h59 UTC +/-8 hs
Altitude: 142.32 Km

If it misses China then Indonesia/Malaysia and the Western tip of Australia are up to bat ;)

They must have some idea where it's going to land, even MiR was sort of predictble

 

edit

 

(I thought they could at least 'guess' based on it's current trajectory)

Nope - it's very light and low enough now that predictions are pretty useless.

Officials at the European Space Agency said Monday that a 2,000-pound satellite that had been steadily sinking toward Earth after it ran out of fuel last month re-entered the atmosphere Sunday, and disintegrated.

 

In a status report posted on the European Space Agency's websiteexternal-link.png, scientists said the GOCE, or Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer, re-entered Earth's atmosphere at 1:00 a.m. Central European Time Monday (7 p.m. Eastern Time Sunday) on a descending orbit pass that extended across Siberia, the western Pacific Ocean, the eastern Indian Ocean and Antarctica.

 

"As expected, the satellite disintegrated in the high atmosphere and no damage to property has been reported," the report said. 

 

The agency earlier estimated on its website that about 25 percent of the spacecraft survived re-entry and has fallen into the ocean.
