    My attention was drawn to
    
    http://esamultimedia.esa.int/docs/ATV/infokit/english/Complete_Infokit_ATVreentry.pdf
    
    I cannot reconcile the times given in there with 2112 EDT,  so will query 
    this with Spaceref.
    
    It is interesting to note (though not particularly obvious at least on my 
    screen but is clearer if you print it, ) that fragments are likely to drop 
    in the vicinity of New Zealand, including some points close to the Awarua 
    tracking station and some uncomfortably close to the east coast of the North 
    Island not too far from me!
