    At about 50N 15W facing east at 0425 UT yesterday (11 Oct),
    I observed some form of re-entry. Appeared to be more or less
    vertical so I guess in a E-W plain. Lasted about 3-4 seconds.
    Brighter than a good Iridium flare so I guess about mag -10ish.
    General "whiteness" and tints suggest definitely not a natural
    phenomenon.
    Anyone see it or have an idea what it was?
