Did this object decay as predicted, with a visible track over the US East
coast?  There have been numerous reports of a decay-like fireball and trail
on Baltimore, MD radio stations around 6AM local time (1000 UTC).  None of
the reports that I heard had any specifics as to direction, accurate time,
etc.

I was driving home at the time but wasn't looking in the right direction...
