    Had a possible sighting of 1K this morning from position here, just west of
    Liverpool UK
    
    I say possible as conditions were not good.I was clouded out for the +/-
    0530 pass , but cloud had dispersed by 0700 enough to create some gaps to
    the south.
    
    At  070628 I caught sight of a faint object low in the south east sky moving
    quite quickly through the gaps.
    This would have put it about 5 minutes late on my keps , but the elset I'm
    using is probably by now out of date.
    
    The best vis opportunities were probably further east , over Europe , and I
    wondered if anyone else caught a glimpse?
    
    BTW Jim O has posted a note from MOSCOW AGENTSTVO VOYENNYKH NOVOSTEY
    (Interfax) on the FPSpace list in which the European Union satellite Centre
    now confirms the satellite is heading for burn-up , the recent burns serving
    the purpose of making re-entry a more controlled event.
    
    Regards,
    
    John.
