A friend of another mailing list was posting a possible re-entry obs of a
unknown object.  He saw a bright moving object with tail passing close to
Arcturus and continueing its path from West to East before exploding into a
fireball somewhat further.

There was a passage on Aug 6 of 97-38C at 20:26UTC but he saw this at
20:20UTC.  Could this be 97-38C ?
