    Whilst waiting for Iridium 68 to flare last night (which it did, as
    predicted), I saw what looked like a "standard" meteor
    re-entry - i.e. lasting about a second. However, it was a lot
    brighter than ones I've seen previously - probably even
    going into negative magnitudes. It probably was a
    meteor, but on the offchance...
    
    Does a decay differ much from a meteor?
