    Kevin,
    
    I would be very interested to know if you see anything.
    
    There is a bit of conflicting info at present....CNN report
    
    "Both the satellite and the booster will after a while fall back to Earth.
    Both will burn with maybe small bits reaching the Earth's surface, depending
    on what materials the satellite was made of," Kreidenko said. "But there is
    no danger."
    
    ..........but I got the impression from my phone conversation that they were
    hopeful , not only to re-boost but had not yet written off the bird as lost.
    
    John.
