    The  person who forwarded me the information, Mitch Petree,  has forwarded 
    me a copy of the article concerned and the reaction of the person quoted in 
    the newspaper article who observed this without knowing what it was can only 
    be described as total panic. Most unfortunate considering that the event was 
    predicted both by Calsky and Space-Track!
    
    The video referred to is the same one which was played on ABC news.
    
    Mitch has also kindly agreed to my forwarding the following, some of the 
    links may already be known to you:
    
    <Quote> I also found a trail of web sites about the launch and reentry.  A 
    friend's
    son saw it, too, and wrote in to CORDS about it, causing the "Sighted" 
    marker
    on the Reentry News page: http://www.reentrynews.com/28630.html
    
    I also found these links:
    
    a space news article on the launch:
    http://spaceflightnow.com/news/n0503/30proton/
    another space new article on the launch, more specifics on payload:

    desc. of Proton K rocket - lists 30 March launch at bottom of page:

    desc. of Express comm. sat. - the payload of the launched Proton K rocket;
    lists 30 March launch at bottom of page:

    He also attached a copy of the description of his friend's sighting 
    description resulting in the report to CORDS: I will try and obtain 
    permission from the author to relay this.
