Space Weather News for Sept. 18, 2008

DOOMED SPACECRAFT: Jules Verne is about to become a fireball. On Sept.
29th, with NASA aircraft looking on, the 22-ton European spacecraft
will plunge into Earth's atmosphere over the south Pacific Ocean and
harmlessly disintegrate. Jules Verne recently spent five months docked to
the space station where it delivered supplies, used its engines help the
station avoid a piece of space junk, and served as an impromptu
bedroom for the ISS crew. Mission accomplished, the doomed spacecraft is now
making its final orbits around Earth glowing about as brightly as
Polaris (the North Star). US and European observers are favored with flybys
this weekend. If you'd like to see Jules Verne, check the Simple
Satellite Tracker for viewing times:
