NASA gives 1-hour window for falling satellite

CAPE CANAVERAL, FL (AP) NASA is narrowing the timeframe on when a 6-ton satellite is expected to collide with Earth.

NASA said late Friday that the satellite is now expected to fall from the sky between 11:45 p.m. and 12:45 a.m. Saturday.

Canada and Africa are in the potential crosshairs, although most of the satellite should burn up during re-entry. The United States isn't entirely out of the woods; the possible strike zone skirted Washington state.
