It was pointed out to me that this will actually be a fuel dump only - not a 
reentry burn too as usual. The orbit of the Centaur is such that it will reenter 
without a burn, apparently.

As the dump is in earth shadow, this unfortunately means that nothing will be 
visible (as the dumped cloud of fuel droplets will n ot be illuminated).
