The Chinese rocket was visible in Jordan's sky Saturday evening at approximately 11:30 pm, according to astronomer Imad Mujahid.

Mujahid told Roya that the rocket is still orbiting the earth but it is very close to the surface. He explained that it is only 160 km away, after it was 190 km away 24 hours ago.

Mujahid expects the rocket to return to Jordan's sky 8:12 am Sunday morning but he predicted that it will fall somewhere in central Asia.

He noted that it is possible that the rocket will land in a populated area. He added that he expects the rocket fall to earth Saturday night or Sunday morning.
