According to the experts ARISSat will re-enter and burnout on 4 January 2012 at 10:00 UTC +/- 18 hours.
That leaves us (South Africans) with 1 possibly 2 more opportunities (passes) that we can capture the images and messages being sent from this satellite. Rather sad in a way?
The image below was captured this morning just after the satellite switched on, 14 minutes (approx) after being illuminated by the sun.
