    hello, on Sept 15th I have taken a video of a pass of UARS over 
    Northern France, between 04:42:14 and 04:44:02 UTC. It is obvious 
    that the satellite is rotating on itself, could this be due to a 
    collision with satellite debris a few years ago? (there were a 
    discussion in this group about this possibility in 2008)
    Video and other data on this page:
    As usual, each frame of the video is a combination of 15 consecutive 
    raw (12bit fits) images, without any other processing.
