Hey, did anybody besides me happen to be looking towards the SW at around 9 PM last night (April 29)? It looked like some sort of satellite reentering the atmosphere, but I haven't been able to find anything on the news about it -- which is kind of unusual, since they tend to jump on any story about something blowing up.

Hrm. That would just about explain it.

That was pretty weird-looking for a rocket, though.

Southeast for you maybe? It was northeast for me, but yeah I saw it. A few friends of mine were down from Riddle so we all watched for it. It was great night to look for it also... not a cloud

PS -- I still say it looked weird for a launch; I'd swear it looked horizontal.
