The third stage of a Tsyklon 3 rocket is due to re-enter Earth's atmosphere tonight, Jan. 7th-8th. This is a piece of a Russian rocket launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Nov. 1990--so it has been in orbit for 16+ years! The re-entry could take place over the central or western USA. Sky watchers, be alert for fireballs.
