    Hello all,
    Saw the reentry of something tonight. Don't think it was a fireball/meter. 
    May have been a rocket body or satellite.
    Object streaked across the sky dimming and coming back several times. Very 
    long smoke trail.
    Reentry happened about 10:05 p.m. EDT (Thursday, Aug. 19), heading east to 
    west, about 90 degrees azimuth, straight overhead. Very cool.
    If anyone can help I.D. this object, let me know.
    I'm in Leesburg, Va., about 30 miles west of Washington, D.C.
