    I'd agree Marco....and in addition it just doesn't match the possible path of either.
    
    However there is some confusion over how long it lasted.
    
    The video showed the event was short lived , but one of the witnesses mentioned ten minutes.I suspect they really meant ten seconds.
    
    What with the warnings given across Canada Friday and the statement issued by the FAA yesterday it seems that Canada and USA are in the grips of re-entry mania !
    
    Perhaps when NASA and NORAD have come up with the modelling from the collision we will have a better idea of where the main fragmants are .... what is concerning is that it seems to be taking quite a while to come up with the data.
