The object seen over Washington and British Columbia was almost
certainly the Kupon Platform.  According to Alan Pickup's elsets,
it was in the right place at the right time to match the eyewitness
accounts.  At just after 9:09 it reached Vancouver Island, heading
almost exactly west to east.

Someone else will have to provide details on object itself.  I only
know it was associated with a recent launch by the Russians.
