    Can anyone look up or confirm over which area the sat "Delta 1 debris" 
    (1972-058CG / 07941) decayed, if it did yet?  I heard several reports from 
    people in The Netherlands that they saw a bright (mag -6) fireball around 
    18:15 UTC, Feb 19, with "several colors and sparks flying off".  Reports of 
    directions however are scarce and the ones I saw don't really match the 
    trajectory of the sat, unless the angle of reentry was very steep.  But as 
    far as I could see it was near or over Europe at that time.  I couldn't 
    find the old TLE for it to look it up in a sky program myself.  If anyone 
    knows more, or could send me its TLE from Feb 17 or 18, that would be great.
