What to do about falling Satellite pieces?

I like that the Russians are talking about the debris causing problems for other satellites, when it was their dead and out-of-control satellite that set up this situation in the first place.

Debris falling in Texas, possibly from satellites
FAA officials believe debris could be related to satellite collision

Feb. 15, 2009

DALLAS - The Federal Aviation Administration has received numerous reports of falling debris across Texas, which could be related to a recent satellite collision.

Some of the callers around midmorning Sunday reported what looked like a fireball in the sky.

FAA spokesman Roland Herwig said officials suspect the debris could be related to the collision, but he said that had not been confirmed.

The FAA notified pilots on Saturday to be aware of possible debris after a collision Tuesday between U.S. and Russian communication satellites. The chief of Russia's Mission Control says clouds of debris from the collision will circle Earth and threaten numerous satellites.

We also had lots of folks spotting stuff Friday night here in Kentucky [as well in Italy]. I was at the 10th FARK.COM birthday party and one of the guys wandered in and said it lit the sky up here in Lexington.
