    If the Notice to Airmen is correct and I am reading it right the shootdown
    will occur during the total lunar eclipse.
    Also, Hawaiian time is UT-10 not 9. 0330UT is 5:30pm in Hawaii and it will
    still be daylight.
    The satellite (or debris cloud) will pass NW of where I live 10 minutes
    after the "shootdown. Any idea what might be visible? Would some of the
    pieces already be reentering the atmosphere?
