    The apparent divergence between USG estimates and SatEvo persists.
    Hopefully enough tracking data will be collected to throw light on
    where the difference comes from.
    US satellite to enter atmosphere around March 6: US diplomat
    GENEVA, Feb 15 (AFP) Feb 15, 2008
    An out-of-commission US spy satellite will enter the Earth's atmosphere
    on or around March 6 if Washington fails with its plans to shoot it
    down, a top US diplomat said on Friday.
    "If the engagement fails, the satellite is expected to make an
    uncontrolled re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere on or about 6 March
    2008 in any region on the Earth's surface between 58.5 degrees North
    and 58.5 degrees South latitudes," said Christina Rocca, US ambassador
    to the Geneva-based Conference on Disarmament (CD).
