CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- NASA is now saying the UARS satellite will not be passing over North America when finally falls out of orbit sometime Friday afternoon.

While scientists are still trying to figure out where a dying 6-ton satellite will fall to Earth, NASA expects the re-entry point now will be somewhere else.

Read NASA's report on UARS.

Earlier this week, NASA says the crash site would be anywhere between 57 degrees north latitude and 57 degrees south latitude and the remains could leave a 500-mile long footprint.

The UARS or Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite is expected to break into pieces as it re-enters the atmosphere sometime Friday afternoon.
