I am seeing:

"The most recent estimates say the Tiangong 1 space station will be reentering 2 April, around 03:30 UTC, plus/minus a few hours."

That would be 4 hours earlier Eastern Standard time here so any time now I guess

RIP Heavenly Palace.

I will miss Tiangong 1.  Even though I only saw it once, I think!

But I have found some debris in my yard that I can't account for.

That's not me -- I took the picture. 

That's some of the local color - my neighbor, Festus.

Phew! 

I'm glad it wasn't one of their nukes! Or, if it was, that it didn't go off as intended.

Important activities in the big Moon's neighborhood tonight!

Saturn in Opposition, and dangling near the Full Moon.



Saturn reaches opposition on June 27; it lies opposite the Sun in
our sky, rising at sunset and setting at sunrise. It is also at its brightest,
largest, and nearest to Earth – around 841 million miles distant.


 Look in the moon’s glare for a starlike point. That point is a planet, Saturn.
