    I asked yesterday about the bright flashes seen in previous "in-cockpit"
    reentry videos. The answer that best matched what I saw is thruster firings.
    I am wondering if these firing can leave small glowing gas spots visible
    from the ground during reentry. Today's news from NASA adds to the news that
    there was increased drag on the left side with the information that
    thrusters were doing all they could to maintain the spacecraft's attitude.
    Is it possible that flashes along the reentry track early on the west coast
    and the small "pieces of debris" seen at that time could have really been
    unusually long and rapid thruster activity??
