How to see the satellite
The rogue spy satellite, USA 193, already is descending as its orbit decays and it is slowed by friction in the upper atmosphere.
As the satellite loses altitude, it should be bright and visible from the ground, according to www.heavens-above.com based in Germany.
Could the satellite be seen from Minneapolis? Yes, the website says, for periods of five minutes or fewer per day. The site offers times and other details for the next few days — provided, of course, that the satellite hasn't been shot down. The site also offers charts showing the satellite's location against a backdrop of stars.
What satellite trackers can't do is predict exactly when and where the spy satellite will hit the Earth if it isn't shot down. That would be akin to precisely predicting weather a month in advance, said the scientists who contribute to heavens-above.com. Too many variables.
