Meteor 1-1, the Soviet Union’s first operational meteorological satellite that was launched on 26 March 1969 re-entered Earth’s atmosphere at around 2217 GMT on Monday 26 March. The satellite re-entered over Antarctica and most, if not all, of the satellite will have burnt up but any residue debris will have landed in the Queen Maud Land region of Antarctica.
