Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Where is Phobos Grunt right now?

Phobos Grunt is down – Sunday 15th January 2012

Did I speak too soon? Final 60 minutes of Phobos Grunt orbit and getting nearer to Cyprus and Greece. See below:

Europe is safe today! The path of the satellite seems to be taking in North & South America and the Philippines. A big difference from yesterday’s trail. Check out the image below on twitter:

Update Saturday 14th January 2012

With less than 29 hours to go before Phobos Grunt is predicted to fall out of the sky, it’s time to keep looking skywards and see if you can spot it. The satellite passed south of Cyprus between Alexandria in Egypt and close to Mersin on mainland Turkey a short time ago. Check out the live satellite tracker on the twitter link below:

It seems to have gone a little quiet regarding the next piece of space junk that is about to descend on Mother Earth.

Predictions were originally stated as being between 6th and 19th January 2012 when the monster would land. We’re fast approaching that first date and it seems nobody is any the wiser.

So, where is the Phobos Grunt Russian satellite right now?

Keep an eye on some live real time satellite tracking here.

Or, some of the updates on Space101 website.

Keep an eye open for regular twitter updates at the bottom right of this blog for Phobos Grunt Satellite News.

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire. If you like my photos, you can see more of them on Flickr (Thulborn-Chapman Photography): and don't forget to check me out on Twitter too - you can find me: @CyprusPictures aka Fylde Coast Musings Enjoy!
