    Reading the various entrails that have appeared in the press, I'd
    expect the intercept to occur on a descending pass west of Hawaii, but
    close enough that the space surveillance site on Maui will have a
    fairly high-elevation look at the event. Probably it will happen as the
    satellite is rising as seen from Maui (to the northwest) so that the
    first few minutes of the evolution of the debris cloud can be imaged.
