    I have examined the re-entry circumstances of all six objects mentioned
    by Ed Cannon as candidates for the "Lights in the Sky" (over the
    Bahamas) account at
                 http://www.attrill.freeserve.co.uk/lights.htm
    
    Unfortunately, none of the six could have caused the observed phenomena.
    Most of them probably decayed later in the day than the reported time
    (1985 Jan 11 02:48 UTC) and none had orbital planes that allowed them to
    be observable from the Bahamas at this time.
