    Thank you very much to Alan and to Jeff for the replies!
    
    I'll repeat the link to the local TV station's story because
    now associate with it they have their report online from early
    this morning:
    
      http://www.kxan.com/Global/story.asp?S=5230270
    
    It seems that the reporter checked for satellites going over
    in the right direction at the right time and found Cosmos
    2227 Rk (92-093B, 22285) going over, but it really was just
    an ordinary pass.
    
    Another reporter from the TV station interviewed me and said
    that they should have video from that interview online after
    6:00 PM CDT (23:00 UTC).  Of course with TV news, things like
    this can always be preempted by breaking stories or other
    factors.  In fact, while he was interviewing me some buses
    went by and then a big truck, and it may be that the interview
    was somewhat spoiled by external noise.
    
    This was obviously a real wowser, since it was seen from south
    of Austin to as far north as Plano, and from Lake Buchanan in
    the west to College Station in the east.  It was going from
    south to north.  I have not yet found any reports from towns
    in between:  Temple, Belton, Killeen, Waco.  Of course it
    would have been almost directly above them and so might have
    been quite short from their perspective.
