    Awesome, didn't know this existed. Watched the SpaceX launch yesterday. Of course I installed gpredict straight away.

    Started reading updates first thing this morning...
    I've been seeing "next 2 hours or so, plus or minus" all day.
    Various explanations why it's not possible be more precise.

    As noted, current estimate is "about 2 hrs from now" about 8:30 pm EST but also may well into the beginning of the next day.
    Also median point of re-entry said to be just west of the southern tip of South America (moving eastwards). But, that's likely to change.
    From the estimated altitudes, seems the space station is skipping off the atmosphere repeatedly as it sinks into the atmosphere, it's not doing a sudden nose-dive.

    Also,
    When the Tianjin actually does break up completely, it's estimated that no actual confirmation will be published for up to another 2 hrs to double check the sensor readings.
