Reentry of Chinese rocket stage expected in next 24 HRS - photo OP.

It's a long shot, but perhaps worth being prepared for the reentry of the upper stage of a Chinese Long March 5B rocket. The latest prediction says it's due 09 May 2021 02:27 UTC ± 180 mins.

It's not looking like it's possible to observe from the UK as far as I can see, but southern Europe, Africa, and parts of the USA might get to see it.
