The fuel dump of the Centaur upper stage was spectacularly visible
from the Netherlands. I'm collating some pictures in this twitter

Besides the fuel dump, the exhaust from the de-orbit burn was also
visible. This burn occurred in darkness, just prior to eclipse exit.
The fuel dump was bright enough to track it until it set at the
horizon (which in NL basically is ~0 deg elevation).
