NASA says a defunct 6-ton satellite has fallen from the sky. The agency posted on its official Twitter site that the spacecraft crashed through the atmosphere early Saturday morning. A location was not immediately known.
Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo is on Satellite Watch and they suggest that falling six-ton satellite has a chance to hit the Western Pacific Ocean and Western US — including California.
NASA now says that one of its six-ton satellites could hit the United States when it falls to earth late Friday night or early Saturday morning.
One of NASA’s six-ton satellites is expected to fall to earth later this week.
