    The Canadian sighting just fifteen minutes after the impact seems to suggest 
    that there may have been two events...perhaps the tank blew shortly after 
    the hit.
    What is also interesting is that the reports indicate a fan like display 
    which could indicate that the fragments have spread  far and wide !
    
    The "remains" have just passed over the USA NW to SE
