    It entered the atmosphere over the Maldives in the Indian Ocean shortly after midnight (local time), some 2 hours ago.

    Further details are still forthcoming.

    It's the first large uncontrolled re-entry for quite a long time I think.

    Dodged a bit of a bullet. Seems only a matter of time before a man made object falls from space and does land where we'd wish it hadn't.

    From Twitter:
    The US Space Force's 18th Space Control Squadron has now confirmed that the CZ-5B-Y2 reentered over the Indian Ocean. They say 'north of the Maldives' but give a position of 50E 22.2N which is in the Rub al Khali desert of Saudi Arabia.

    Seems the tracker I was following in the OP was not that accurate. Their timing had reentry into the atmosphere somewhere over the South Pacific. Then we continued to watch it track over Central America and Florida. I’m still unclear about the time difference between reentry and pieces actually striking earth’s surface.

    China said the rocket burned up on reentry.
    China also said this was a real Rolex.
