Russian Telescope Captures Burning Up Progress Spacecraft

Russian astronomers have captured a video of what is apparently the falling Progress spacecraft three days before it is scheduled to burn up.

The falling Progress spacecraft has been reportedly captured reentering the atmosphere by Russia's MASTER telescope over South Africa.

Russian and American space and defense officials previously said that the craft, which failed to reach the ISS, would reenter the atmosphere on Friday. The footage, which matches the location where the craft reportedly passed suggests that it has already reentered the atmosphere.

The footage was captured at around 5:05 PM GMT on Tuesday. At the time, the spacecraft was passing over the area according to satellite tracker Satflare.

The MASTER (Mobile Astronomical System of Telescope-Robots) network is a worldwide system of telescopes managed by Moscow State University.

The Progress M-27M cargo vessel was launched on April 28 from the Baikonur Space Station in Kazakhstan, but after reaching space went into an uncontrolled spin and the docking with the International Space Station (ISS) was canceled. Since then the vessel spun out of control and began its descent into the Earth's atmosphere.
