    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
    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.
