MOSCOW, February 12 (RIA Novosti) – A decommissioned Soviet military satellite will burn up in the atmosphere Sunday in an uncontrolled descent and surviving fragments may hit Earth, according to an aerospace defense official.
The military is actively monitoring the satellite using its space tracking network, which has indicated that it will impact the Pacific Ocean on Sunday, Colonel Alexei Zolotukhin said Friday.
“As of February 7, 2014 the fragments are expected to fall on February 16. The exact impact time and location of the fragments from the Kosmos-1220 satellite may change due to external factors,” Zolotukhin said.
Uncertainty over the reentry time means that the satellite, orbiting in a high-inclination orbit, could impact nearly any point on Earth's surface, including populated areas.
The size and weight of the Kosmos-1220, a naval electronic surveillance satellite, remain unknown, although the Tsiklon-2 rocket it was launched on in 1980 has a maximum payload capacity of around three metric tons.

I'm pretty sure the satellite will hit earth.

The satellite is very close and the earth is a large target.

Looks like it passes around 150 km north of us. Very cool.

In the scheme of the universe it's pretty small, but I'm ready.

Ironic if it hits Russia.

You should grab a sounding rocket from somewhere and try shooting it down.

Whoops - too late.

The soviets are going to want it to land in their territory. They have designated landing areas for space debris.
