Greetings all...

I am on watch at Rescue Coordination Center Norfolk and have just received a 
report of a "possible flare."  We have multiple reporting sources from 
Wilmington (North Carolina, USA) south to Charleston (South Carolina, 
USA)... object was bright (no, I don't know how bright) and orange in 
color... seen for approximately 2 seconds... seen to "fall" only... all 
reporting sources sighted object at approximately 0145 UTC 7 August 1999... 
the furthest north reporting source was at approx position 33-52N 078-29W 
and saw the object in a southerly direction... if any "trained" observers 
witnessed this object and can id it as a meteor or fire ball, please let me 
know as soon as possible...

Thanks for your help.

Regards.
