    >Space junk? Meteorite? One of the Polish subscribers to meteorobs says it has ben identified as space junk, if I understand him correctly. Indeed, the one photo that appears to show something of the object itself (embedded in the dashboard of the car), if the on-line translator did not fool me, seems to show something artificial.
    The event was 24 hours later than the reported decay of Cosmos 2405. Cant imagine
    an error that big being made. Plotting the virtual orbit plane of this object
    for time of the event I think its just a little too far to the west to be
    over Poland
