The Pentagon has decided the errant spy satellite poses too great a risk to simply let burn up on its own, and therefore must be shot down. Space.com has the details of just what, exactly, this will entail and how it might look. The intercept is taking place at a much lower altitude than did China's last year, so presumably the debris hazard will be much reduced.

Rednecks + Very High Altitude Balloon + RPG = problem solved.

And with some remote cameras, we'd all get to see the, "Hey y'all, watch this!" moment live...

FYI - they did successfully hit it. On the first shot, no less.
