It seems to bounce on top of higher atmospheric layers.

Yes! that's... 5km up/down, isn't it? it make sense, but it will fall at any moment. One rev late for me (near Barcelona).

The orbit was or is now quite circular (Eccentricity was 0.0003809 a few hours ago).

Until somebody sees it falling down, it's suposed to be there! It seems it passed its last perigee, so, it seems to go around again. So, we must wait another 45 min. aprox.

UARS Satellite Groundtrack: Canada

@Anonymous

The orbit is so low.... (it was actually predicted to have already come down off the west Coast - but there is a chance it might make it to Australia/Antarctica)
