Another thing my daughter and I got to thinking about this afternoon is 
that this rocket/missile was dropping boosters, or stages over 
land/inhabited areas, which I don't think would be the norm.

No information on any lists/groups, nothing in the news or various 
online schedules.

Anyone at all have any ideas?
