    I found a report from the vicinity of Nome, Alaska, 
    that seems like it might be some sort of launch 
    sighting on October 23.  I found Kevin's brief note 
    here of the launch on that date of an Oko satellite.  
    On Jonathan's site I found that it was Cosmos 2340, 
    launched from Plesetsk.  Plesetsk is at about 40 
    east and 62 north.  I believe Okos are in roughly 
    63-degree orbits, very highly eccentric, of course.  
    The person reported the sighting to the west, seen 
    in the morning.  The report is here:

    If the time matches, etc., it seems to me that 
    maybe the person saw some segment of that launch.
