123 km and still rising. Very odd for a falling satellite.

128 km now. USA better watch out, as this thing isn't falling as fast as they thought it was going to. Just starting to go over Antarctica now.

It's probably skipping across on areas where air molecules are closer together at that altitude. It just needs to slow down a little bit more and it will begin to plunge.
