Evidently, the 7-1/2 Ton Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer [EUVE] is going to crash land sometime tonight, beginning at approximately 11 P.M., EST. Everybody has to DUCK! EUVE went many years beyond its mission, so it is time for it to come down in a planned crash landing, expected to be far from metropolitan areas (hopefully) in a wide area encircling the Earth on either side of the Equator.
To get some real, rather than my somewhat misinformed, information about it, try:

I think I will begin by hiding under my bed, just in case EUVE takes off on its own in my direction!
