I have posted an updated prediction for the decay of #25916, the Foton
12 debris object, to my Decay Watch page at

I now predict the decay for October 10 21:22 UTC +-2h in the vicinity of
a northbound equator crossing over the Indonesia. If it survives, that
orbit would take it SE over W Canada and across the USA from Great
Falls, Montana, at 21:51 UTC, to Denver, Colorado, at 21:54 and between
Houston and San Antonio, Texas, at 21:57. SpaceCom puts decay one orbit
later on that orbit at 22:44 UTC +-4h, over the Indian Ocean on the
approach to the following equator crossing.
