Space Junk: Satellite Falling to Earth Pictures?

NASA said that a big piece of space junk, an old climate satellite will be falling to earth and it could be dangerous.
The satellite has been orbiting the Earth for 20 years and it will first burn and then make contact with our land.
Apparently we are all at risk, since NASA said anyone in Earth, except Antarctica is at risk of being hit by space junk.
And the worst part is that the satellite that is falling is huge and is coming really fast. Are there any pictures of the space junk that is falling?

The UARS (Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite) is close to making its plunge through Earth's atmosphere, it will be falling to Earth on Friday.
Fortunately, we'll know where it is going to fall 2 hours before so if it's going down in your city, you will heard about it first.
If you visit Space.com, you get to see pictures and video of the space junk.
This is not the first time space junk falls from the sky. There is a 1-in-3,200 chance that UARS debris could hit a person, though NASA considers that scenario extremely remote.
The reason the satellite is expected to fall early in its re-entry window is because of the sharp uptick in solar activity.

The satellite probably would hurt around 25 people if it hits your house I say hide somewhere.
