    UPDATE: Looks like the satellite's down. Reuters has confirmed it; some Twitter reports say pieces of debris fell south of Calgary

    CNN with "citizen journalist" reports from Hawaii to Minnesota claiming they saw it come down.

    I got news for you: whatever people saw in Hawaii and then Minnesota, it wasn't the same satellite.

    NASA somewhat curiously claiming they don't know where it came down.

    NASA may not, but I have a feeling NORAD knows exactly where it came down within a handful of miles.
