    Asteroidal debris. As I mentioned, the meteor on the video footage really is not 
    compatible with what decaying satellite debris should look like. It is 
    completely compatible with a fireball of asteroidal origin however.
    
    So no matter what the FAA says, this was not debris from the Iridium-Kosmos 
    collision, I am sorry.
