MYSTERY OBJECT TO HIT EARTH ON FRIDAY THE 13TH: A piece of space junk named “WT1190F” is going to hit Earth on Nov. 13th (0620UT). It will burn up in the atmosphere off the coast of Sri Lanka, with some debris possibly reaching the water’s surface. According to the European Space Agency,

the idea girl says

they are assuming it’s going to burn up in the atmosphere, and they are assuming it’s earth space debris, yet in the notes it says it’s not orbiting earth like a satellite would, even though they think it’s a satellite?  what if it’s a UFO that’s come to visit Earth? hmmmm only time will tell, because so far they haven’t figured out what it is…

WT1190F (9U01FF6, UDA34A3, or UW8551D) is a small temporary satellite of the Earth, thought to be space junk,[3] that will impact the Earth on November 13, 2015. The time of impact is now known with an accuracy of about 4 seconds.[4] It was first discovered on February 18, 2013 by the Catalina Sky Survey.[2][5] It was then lost, and reacquired on November 29, 2013. It was again discovered on October 3, 2015, and the object was soon identified to be the same as the two objects previously sighted by the team, who have been sharing their data through the International Astronomical Union‘s Minor Planet Center (MPC).[6] An early orbit calculation showed that it was orbiting the Earth in an extremely elliptical orbit, taking it from within the geosynchronous satellite ring to nearly twice the distance of the Moon.[1] It is also probably the same object as 9U01FF6, another object on a similar orbit discovered on October 26, 2009.

WT1190F has been orbiting the Earth as a temporary satellite since mid 2009 (named as UWAIS), if not longer. While it has not been positively identified with any known artificial satellites, its estimated density of 0.1 g/cm³ is much lower than would be expected of a natural object. Hence, European Space Agency astronomers have concluded that the object is likely a fuel tank of some sort.[2][5]

After more observations, ESA astronomers have determined that the object will impact the Earth on November 13, 2015 at approximately 06:20 UTC (11:50 local time), south of Sri Lanka.[2][5] Due to its small size, it is expected that most or all of the object will burn up in the atmosphere before impacting, but will be visible as a bright daytime fireball.[2][5]
