One thing has me a little worried about what may be a sighting of part 
of the ANGARA 5 test
from Southern Africa.      At the time reported the sky was still bright 
so the event to be
related to the mission must have been VERY bright - impossibly so????

As far as I can gather the BRIZ-M and dummy payload entered an orbit of 
35841 x 38680 km
at 0.3 degrees. I have still to find out the catalog number so hopefully 
will be able to get
orbital data from SPACETRACK and thus check whether the flight 
trajectory matched the
approximate observations.

If its not related to ANGARA 5 then there is a problem - I hate UFO 
reports :-)))
