    Report time 15:30 UTC  
    
    1994-008F (#22986) Proton Upper Stage "Debris".  
    The RCS and the ballistic coefficient looks like an Auxiliary Motor and not like
    a piece of debris. Maybe a misidentification by SPACECOM.
    
    SPACECOM'S  FINAL REPORT - prepared Feb 15, 14:07 UTC shows the decay on
                   15 February, 12:25 UTC +/- 18 minutes  (21.8S, 28.8E)
    on a descending pass over Zimbabwe.
    
    My final analysis with MPM + REENTRY delivers with the ELSETs 01046.108... -
    01046.480... the decay on
                  15 February, 12:20 UTC +/- 11 minutes  (10.42S, 17.89E)
    on the same pass over Angola.
