    Hi all,
    Another request from a Heavens-Above visitor which sounds like it could be a
    satellite reentry. Any ideas which object it could have been, if any.
    
    Thanks,

    Hi Chris,
    
    Great website, we use it from our phones when we star gazing.
    
    Anyway, on tue 6th February 2007 I saw what I believe was a satellite
    reentry. It wasnít a normal meteor as it left a trail, was much brighter,
    lasted longer, traveled slower and seemed lower. Iím trying to identify
    which satellite it was.
    
    The details are: 
    Location:†††††††††† Paarl, south Africa
    Time:††††††††††††††† 23h00 SA time (I think we GMT +2h00)
    
    Can you PLEASE help.
    
    Thanks
    
    Brett Wordon
