    Theo, there were no man-made garbage close enough to decay at 20:30UT
    April 6, so it cant be "space junk". you can check alan Pickup's
    site about decays at http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/dkwatc
    Comet Ikeya-Zheng was above the horizon at the time,
    elevation 8 degrees at a bearing 24 degrees west of north. It may
    have been noticed. of course it wouldnt be moving except with the
    rotation of the Earth. 
    Almost certainly a slow grazing meteor.
