I am an airline pilot. Last night, I was flying from BNA to PHL. Over our right shoulder (around 0220 UTC), breaking up from north to south was the most amazing satellite reentry I have ever seen. It must have been 100s of miles of melting satellite parts! A guess would say, if anything landed, probably be somewhere in Ohio. The visual burn-up lasted about 5 minutes, the last pieces were falling more vertical (as it slowed) and still glowing, so it appeared some probably made it to earth. There was widespread overcast, so it's doubtful anyone from the surface saw a thing. 20+ years of flying, that was the most amazing thing I've ever seen!

Cosmos 1484 was a Soviet remote sensing satellite launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome aboard a Vostok rocket.

It was a follow-on to the Meteor series and the second flight of a prototype for the Resurs-O1 spacecraft. It was used for gathering regular information on the natural resources of the earth for use in various branches of the Soviet economy, and conducting further tests on new types of measuring apparatus and methods of remote sensing of the earth's surface and atmosphere.
