    In sci.astro.amature the threads
    "Fireball 7-1-2000"
    and 
    "Did anyone else see it?"
    seem to be describing a decay.
    
    Last evening I had a non-obs of 21025 at 02:23 UTC but it would have been 
    only 10 deg above that horizon in the SE.

    TiPS
    At Carrs Mill Park (39.3183N, 77.0538W, 100m ASL) I observed TiPS as it 
    passed near delta-Ursa Major at 04:00:40 UTC, 2 July.  I tracked it for about 
    2 minutes and saw the fluctuating brightness between Ralph, Norton and the 
    tether (which was visible most of the pass). 
    
    The NRL elset
    TiPS             2.5  0.0  0.0  6.3 d
    1 00006U 00000C   00179.41666667 0.00001081  00000 0  12235-2 0 00000
    2 00006  63.4250 237.8912 0137007 359.9854  85.7694 13.66254105162600
    is accurate enough for a scope observation.
