    Bill, the last re-entry of substantial size happened over
    Africa on oct 11, the next is due in the next few hours.
    So it was most probably a meteor and not man-made.
    The media and some of the local "experts" they ask dont
    seem to realize that bright meteors are a lot more
    common than re-entry satellites or debris.
