    The only object I know, decaying that night, was Iridium 9.
    At 20:08 UTC-6 it would have passed to far E of Ohio, then decayed over
    Brazil?

    If a piece survived one more orbit it would have passed "just" 500 km W of
    the location (in Tom's mail) - but quite unlikely on both accounts.
