While driving back from a 5th successful aurora night viewing just east
of Fairbanks I looked out our van window at the changing aurora features.
A yellow fireball caught my attention that looked strangely like the start
of a satellite reentry.  Last night I learned it was indeed the tail end
of the GREECE aurora rocket experiment. Too bad I did not know this
earlier or I could have captured it in my camera. The fireball reached -1
and was seen for at least 10 seconds.
