But, what about that SL-16 booster stage that the German fellow came up
with?? Would the "satellite guys" necessarily have known about that kind of

A short portion of a Cincinnati video was shown on the local channel 4
Boston station yesterday evening and it certainly did look like a reentry
to me, although the video was only 5 or 10 seconds long.

What direction did those in Canada facing when they saw the thing: to their
south? From the US, it was apparently to our north. On the video, it looked
to me like maybe 25 or 30 degrees above the horizon.
