Dear Gang,
A commenter from Tashkent, Uzbekistan contacted me about a possible sighting of the reentry of the Chinese CZ-7 Rocket
Body NORAD ID 2017-021B last night (see comments at the end of the article):

Amazing New Views of Near-Earth Asteroid - Sky & Telescope

Time stated was about 12:23 AM local, Tashkent is UT+5. Did some sleuthing, and US JSpOC's Space-Track's TLE prediction
jibes well with the time and location of the sighting within a few minutes. No supporting videos have surfaced yet,
wondering if anyone can confirm.

-Thanks, Dave Dickinson
