NASA: Satellite Is Down [VIDEO]

Pieces of a defunct satellite that fell back to Earth have settled but where exactly is not known, NASA said Saturday.

Reports of suspected sightings have come in from San Antonio, Texas, where a TV photographer caught images in the night sky, and from Hawaii, where Robert Jeffcoat saw what he believed were two chunks from the satellite. Jeffcoat was running errands when the first flying object left a thick, white trail that lingered in the sky for about 20 minutes, he said. A second object followed the same path and was “massive,” “It was like a comet, but smoke,” he said. “I’m guessing it landed in the ocean, the way it was going.”

According to NASA debris fell to Earth between 11:23 p.m. ET Friday and 1:09 a.m. ET Saturday. The Space Agency said the satellite entered the atmosphere over the North Pacific Ocean, off the west coast of the United States. The precise re-entry time and location of any debris impacts are still being determined. NASA is not aware of any reports of injury or property damage, the space agency posted on its website.
