There was a funny
story in a space & aviation magazine some while back written by someone who worked either at NASA or a related company.
Back when Skylab (or something like that) was scheduled to fall to earth, he had a big yard party to welcome it, complete with rocket juice punch and stuff, and a big X marked in the middle of the yard as a target.
His neighbor got all bent out of shape and called the law saying the guy would cause the debris to land next door to him.
So don't put an X or bullseye on your sail!
