    Hi all,
    Does anyone have an idea whether this could have been a satellite re-entry?
    Has anyone heard of other fireball reports at this time.
    Best wishes,
    Chris Peat

    Have just seen (21.10 local time Friday 24th) a large fireball pass directly
    overhead of where I live (Bridgwater, Somerset, UK) travelling fast but
    silently West to East. No trail, initially surrounded by large 'aura', red
    and yellow flaring, appeared to diminish in 'fiery' nature as it disappeared
    below treeline in East. I would be interested to know if you're able to
    identify this object, or supply me with an address I can log on to in order
    to find out more.
    Thanks for any help on this matter.
