    At 0642 UTC I observed a very faint contrail at around 20 degrees elevation 
    in the Northnorthwest in an otherwise clear sky with the sun setting.  (the 
    first clear day since Christmas!) The trail was only visible for a few 
    degrees and faded very rapidly.  It was oriented south to north which 
    corresponds with the ground track of this object which would have been at 
    163 km elevation at that time.
    
    Not reported then because of the high degree of uncertainty but just for the 
    record!- also for your opinion on the likelihood of such a contrail that 
    early in the decay process.
