    I tried to send this a while ago, but it hasn't appeared yet.
    Since it's time-sensitive, I'm going to try again and risk
    The Aerospace Corporation has an online prediction of the
    re-entry of 93-002D (22312, the upper stage from the launch
    of Molniya 1-85), which includes the predicted ground track,
    ground visibility area, etc.:
    They predict re-entry at 19:35 April 4 UTC (plus or minus
    seven hours) over eastern Australia at night.  That's
    between seven and 21 hours from now, roughly (now being
    almost 5:30 UTC on April 4).
    ETS 6/Kiku 6 (23230, 94-056A) -- Tuesday evening is another
    possible opportunity for those of us in central and eastern
    North America at least to try to see if ETS 6 is what Mike
    Chini saw a few nights ago, about 2:50 UTC, south of Leo
    (basically in Sextans or perhaps a bit east of there).
    Looks like the weather will not be favorable here, again.
