    Thanks Ted (great analysis!), Randy and Mark,
    
    I found two more videos but unfortunately it have no further information to
    enable better accuracy of the trajectory of the fragments:
    
    - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50xUMyrCEgM
    - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEhfsT7XL1E
    
    I'll try to get the geographical coordinates of autor of the videos, if
    successful I post in the list.
    
    Regards
    Carlos Bella
