    Hi all, 
    We just observed (21:54 UTC) a bright (mag -4 or -5) green object flying nearly horizontally from the east to the west at approximately 15 degrees above the horizon. We saw it first below Perseus, to the NE, and it fell apart in two pieces below our sight in Bootes, in the NW. It
    Covered about 60 degrees and was As slow as a bright Orionid, or slightly slower.
    Our coordinates are 51 40'38"N, 5 28'18".
    Are there known possible re-entries, and are there other observations?
    Best regards,
    Ramon van der Hilst
