    I have received a detailed report of an apparent satellite
    decay from a meterological observer at the
    Giles Weather Station ( 28.03S, 128.3E).
    It seems to indicate that the 2000 67B object went a bit further
    than anybody thought.
    At 11:45 UT the object was first sighted at an elevation of
    35 degrees in the SSW. It moved horizontally , and was visible
    for 45s to a minute, dissapearing into trees low in the ENE.
    The reported path and approximate time does correspond
    witha prediction for Giles using the last published elset
    given in the final notice.
