    I have been informed that the object discovered in Pará, Brazil,
    some days ago, which was reported here by Ms. Rosely Gregio, 
    is in fact the oxidizer tank from Telstar 402 (94-058A, 23249).
    The Aerospace Corporation has a page related to its re-entry:
    They predicted re-entry on November 13, 2004 (plus or minus 16 
    hours), and USStratcom's final report gives it, if I read it 
    correctly, as 1:50 UTC on November 14, 2004, with one minute
    Here's my earlier message following up on Ms. Gregio's message:
    and here's her original message:
    Again, I very much appreciate Ms. Gregio sending the report!
