Ed,

There were a couple of threads in sci.astro.amateur from people who
saw this.  Look for "OH BOY-WHAT A BOLLIDE!!!!! Meteor plus!!!!!"
and "Meteorite Sighting 10-3-96".  I think maybe there is another thread
or two but some of them I think were about another object.  I  haven't
looked, but there must be something in sci.astro too.  I was expecting
at first to see a lot of posts in SeeSat-L but I guess because it wasn't
artificial, nobody said anything.  It seems a little high-brow to me.  I 
find SeeSat-L too technical most of the time.  I keep intending to 
unsubscribe but don't for the 5% interesting posts.  Thanks for the tip.
I had been looking for something more on it since my local TV news 
did a short blurb on it.  They showed some video of it that I believe
had been taken from El Paso, Texas.
