MMS centaur rocket question

At about 4:28:32 UTC I saw some fuzzy streaks a degree or two behind the 
centaur extending not quite perpendicular to its path. They appeared and 
faded quickly. My best guess is that it was a high-flying flock of 
birds, but is there a possibility that it was some sort of thrusters 
firing? I'm glad the fuel dump was a lot more obvious. It looked like a 
bright ring that appeared around the rocket and slowly faded as it 
expanded. I counted seven rings total before it went behind Earth's 
shadow. It didn't appear to be visible to the naked eye.

Thanks for posting the predictions for this fuel dump. I've seen a lot 
of satellites, but I've never seen anything like this before.
