USA-193 destroyed



  
The 11pm TV news reports that the Navy sucessfully destroyed USA-193 tonight
at about 10:30 pm EST, or 03:30 GMT February 21. I suggest you keep watching
the predicted passes, you might see some nice meteors in the next few days as
the debris falls back to Earth. The latest keps posted on heavens-above are:
