A Russian satellite is on its final few orbits and is expected (best guess) to impact somewhere in the Caribbean around 1823 UT today.

Yep. I had that tab open from earlier that morning 'cos the first I heard it was expected to re-enter at 1030UT but it actually hit the Pacific Ocean, south of Mexico at 2110UT.
