Good News: Spy Satellite Could Hit the Earth

Where it lands, nobody knows.
A large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and propulsion and could hit the Earth in late February or March, government officials said Saturday.

The satellite, which no longer be controlled, could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is classified as secret.
Well, it was secret.

It may well be harmless, but who knows.

Maybe with the 24/7 news coverage we now get, we could have real hysteria like back in 1979 when Skylab came tumbling down then fell harmlessly into the Indian Ocean.

UPDATE: As noted here and in the comments, parts of Skylab hit did hit Australia.
