Satellite May Strike Earth

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Government officials say a large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and could hit the Earth in late February or March.

Officials are unsure where it will land and say the satellite may contain hazardous materials. A spokesman for the National Security Council says government agencies are monitoring the situation. There was no comment on whether it could be shot down with a missile.

A similar situation occurred in 2002 when a 7,000 pound science satellite landed harmlessly into the Persian Gulf.

Hopefully, this will also land in a large body of water.
