    when i was working with the molniya TLEs the other day, i noted that molniya 
    3-45 (22729 1993-049A) had an 83km perigee... i thought to my self that that one 
    wouldn't be up for very much longer... then within 36 hours, i started seeing 
    reports of a fireball being reported to the AMS (American Meteor Society)... 
    looking at space-track, i don't see anything around the time noted in the video 
    neither have i looked at any ground plots to see if this object might have been 
    a molniya or possibly another manmade object...

    AMS reports:  http://www.amsmeteors.org/fireball_event/2013/3434
    
    so i thought i'd share this with the list and see what shakes out ;)
