    Dear list,
    While walking the dog tonight (030929) I saw a bright meteor at approx.
    21:10 UTC (+/- 5 min) moving from the planet Mars towards the southern
    horizon (so the direction of movement was North - South). The brightness was
    around mag -3 and the velocity was low for a meteor; it lasted for about 5
    seconds.
    I wonder if this might have been a satellite reentry ?
    
    My position is: Loon op Zand (Netherlands)
    lat. 51 37' 34" N (51.6261 )
    long. 05 05' 07" E (05.0852 )
    elev. +10 m above sealevel
    
    Best regards,
    Wim Holwerda
