My backyard in Ellicott City MD - then I'll be able to sell tourist tickets to view it at $100 each and have enough cash to purchase the 1933 Double Eagle coming up for auction in June.

Rats, I didn't realize we got five guesses. Oh well.
Come on, Kyrgyzstan...

Now that the contest is closed, it's worth noting that it should only be able to land within 41 30' of the equator.

I guess it was not the Chinese rocket I saw last night, but the SpaceX Starlink satellite train.

I've decided to change the location to just which Country it lands on , not the City . This way it is more likely that someone wins . If the rocket blows up into thousands of pieces , the contest is over ,no one wins .
Once again good luck to the members who got their guess in by 10:00 am this morning .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

Well I guess we all know by now that the Rocket fell into the Indian Ocean . No winners this time around but thanks to all that participated . Maybe someone else will try this the next time China allows one of their Rockets to fall to Earth .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .
