    I have a observation report from someone who saw a fireball(or reentering
    satellite) with a tail of mag -3 or -4 moving from NW to SE.  Shortly after
    the beginning of the observation there was an explosion with two light
    flashes the first beeing yellow-orange and this was much brighter than the
    tail.  The second couldn't be observed very well due to conditions.
    This has been observed near Turnhout, Belgium at 17h38m UT on 23 October 2000.
    Satellite reentry or Fireball ?
