This is cool, you can see the current orbit of UARS including some information I barely understand here: http://www.n2yo.com/?s=21701

It's in the atmosphere! Put your umbrellas up

Re-entry was expected between 11:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and 12:45 a.m., Sept. 24, Eastern Daylight Time (3:45 a.m. to 4:45 a.m. GMT). During that time period, the satellite was passing over Canada and Africa, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety was very remote. NASA is working to confirm the re-entry location and time and will provide an update shortly.

Lol sunlight that's cute.

UARS is supposed to have broken up and landed by now, NASA is still trying to confirm whether or not it's landed but mainly where. They suspect Canada.

Update #15

NASA’s decommissioned Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite fell back to Earth between 11:23 p.m. EDT Friday, Sept. 23 and 1:09 a.m. EDT Sept. 24. The Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California said the satellite penetrated the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean. The precise re-entry time and location are not yet known with certainty.
I'm really fascinated by satellites now. Supposedly there'll be another one falling in October, and quite a few more next year.
