    I'm not sure how many will be able to get these pages (online archives 
    of the Meteorobs mailing list), but they talk about what apparently 
    was a (submarine?) missile launch off Florida at about 1:15 UTC June 
    26 (9:15 p.m. June 25 USA Eastern Daylight Time).  What was reported 
    by at least one person was a -9 magnitude fireball.  Both URLs are for 
    the same message:

    Several reports from Florida, as well as Georgia and even Pennsylvania 
    (!) appear on the NUFORC site, on June 25 with times give as about 
    20:00 to 21:00 to even 23:00 EDT:

    Wish I'd seen it!
    
    Last night under the full Moon I was dutifully timing various objects 
    when my second, newer stopwatch lost its mind just like the first one 
    -- and this one's less than a year old.  Anyone have a stopwatch with 
    100 or more memories that has lasted for a long time and want to 
    recommend it?
