    You are probably right Bram.  I cannot recall a Soyuz landing traveling
    into a descending direction.

    If it was 0300UTC it could have been possible(I presume) to see a Soyuz
    Reentry over our region.
    Landing time information came from:
    but at the NASA home page you can read:
    "The three-member Soyuz 5 crew is scheduled to undock the Soyuz TM-34
    spacecraft from the station at 2:41 p.m. CST (2041 GMT) Saturday, leaving
    behind the Soyuz TMA-1 spacecraft that it delivered to the station last
    week. Soyuz 5 is scheduled to land in Kazakhstan at 6:04 p.m. CST Saturday
    (0004 GMT Sunday). NASA TV will cover undocking activities, beginning at 2
    p.m. CST (2000 GMT)."
