    Media report from far southeastern Canada about early rocket debris
    from NROL-24 coming down in the ocean minutes after liftoff. The
    typical swarm of 911 emergency calls reporting a crashed airplane...

    Yes, I too assumed at first that the reporters/police/eyewitnesses
    saw the much later fuel dump and thought it was "burning up in the
    atmosphere". Closer inspection of the time (atlantic standard Z-0400)
    and the location downrange of a very high inclination launch from the
    Cape looks like it fits for actual crashing debris.

    PS: I'm now in upstate New York, I see nothing through forever-clouds
    of the Great Lakes in winter.
