    Aerospace's predictions appear to be based on Space-track's predictions, 
    http://www.space-track.org  which is a subscription service and the user 
    agreement does not permit us to relay updates to this list.
    
    Calsky.com has useful predictions  as does http://www.obsat.com
    
    I had been waiting for closer estimates of decay time before posting 
    anything
    
    At this stage it is a little too early for close prediction but it seems 
    certain it will be Sunday evening or Monday morning UTC.
    .
    
    We have several daylight passes during the predicted timeframe but there are 
    some where observation for possible decay could not be attempted owing to 
    the low elevation and the topography here.
    
    Owing to other commitments I may not be able to observe the higher ones but 
    I will if I can and if decay is not too early for these passes to be 
    possibles.
    
    Unfortunately we have not had any visible passes here for some time, and 
    even when we did weather was a problem.  (The weather gurus are forecasting 
    a fine summer here so here's hoping I might get back to observing some 
    others!)
