    I received a report from meteorobs reporting a meteor
    or sat. decay near Nenana Alaska.Neal Brown at the
    University of Alaska is telling media that this was a
    space junk decay.
    I checked Aerospace corpotation decay list,it shows a
    SL-12(27475)R/B Auxmotor decay for April 29.Satobs
    decay list shows this bodies decayed on April 19.I run
    the Rocket body on heavens-above and found a pass at
    2:09:16am PST on April 23.The reported event that was
    seen in Alaska was given as 2:00am PST April 23.
    Does anybody know if this rocket body has decay or
    could this have been what was reported.
