According to, rumors are swirling that certain misbehaving spy satellites are going to get spanked while the Lunar eclipse is going on Wednesday. Here's the crucial bit of gossip:

Rumor has it that the US Navy may make its first attempt to hit USA 193 this Wednesday evening as the satellite passes over the Pacific Ocean. An air traffic advisory warns pilots to avoid a patch of ocean near Maui from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm Hawaii time on Feb. 20th (0230 - 0500 UT, Feb. 21st). This would center the missile strike on Wednesday's lunar eclipse and possibly render reentering debris visible from the North American west coast. Remember, it's just a rumor!
I wish I had a telescope...and a submarine.
