    for big reentries, which are not burn out completely in the atmosphere, 
    exists a large resereved rectangular area in the south pacific West of 
    Chile, ca. some 3000km West of Santigo, used by all countries for controlled 
    reentries. To see it I think you have locate yourself anywhere west, north 
    west or south west of this large area, because it will obviosly be closed 
    for this time for any air or sea traffic.
    But I don't know where to get the exact ground path from. But I don't think 
    so that this will be know so far fron the event next year.
    Are you really sure you want to travvel there in the middle of nothing?
    How will you do this?
    But if you really do this, you have to film, photograph, record, ... it very 
    good (will also some sound be heard?) that everybody can enjoy your nice
