    Now the ground track is available on public sites I am in more of a position 
    to comment.
    I note that the decay occurred just after a pass over Tasmania in daylight. 
    I have  conducted a reasonably extensive (though owing to lack of available 
    time at this point, not exhaustive) search of Tasmanian online news media. 
    So far I have found nothing  which would indicate that anything was seen.
    I was in amongst buildings in Wellington city during the earlier pass near 
    New Zealand and the sky was cloudy so not much chance of looking for any 
    New  Zealand
