    Monday night (March 10/11 local time), a small artificial, 
    metal object crashed through the roof of a house in Ohio 
    and landed near a family member:
    I wonder if any small USA space debris decayed that night?  
    (The article says, "The letters "U.S." are stamped in one 
    corner.")  I wonder if some part of a jet engine might 
    match this object.
    The location was Wilbraham Road in Middletown, Ohio --
    probably the one in Butler County (from heavens-above.com 
    Middletown   Ohio      Butler       39.515 -84.398   223 m
    although there are two other Middletowns in Ohio!
