Starshine 3 Re-entry Bulletin - February 4, 2003
Starshine 3 burned up in the earth's upper atmosphere above northern Canada or southern Greenland at approximately 0515 UTC on January 21, 2003. It had made 7434 revolutions around the earth between the date of its launch from Kodiak, Alaska, on September 29, 2001, and its fiery end on January 21, 2003. No observations were reported of this event.
Out of respect for the brave crew of Space Shuttle Columbia who were lost on February 1, 2003, the Starshine web site will temporarily suspend operations.
