Re: Decay Possibilities???

I have not (yet) found a possible decay.
However, the orbits of several 1994-29 fragments were rising in the NW
and going W of South Carolina. There may be some of these I haven't
updated recently, or even omitted from my check list.

Some Mir debris objects are decaying around this date, particularly
#23890, but they would be passing N.Africa-Russia at that time.

Several friends in the Charleston SC observed a VERY bright object enter 
the atmosphere at 19:45 local time 3/15/97 (00:45 UTC 3/16/95) They said 
it was white and red lasting for several seconds to the northwest. One 
fellow said he was looking the other direction and his daughter said she 
saw something, so he turned and observed it as well. Any possiblities 
that it was a decay?
Thanks in advance!
