    Hi everybody,
    Tonight (Feb. 15, local) there was a beautiful Shuttle pass culminating at
    23:11 UTC at 45 deg. elevation to the northeast. Its magnitude reached
    -3 but what surprised me was that a tail of something was coming out of
    the Shuttle northward, about 50 to 60 degrees upward. It was about a
    half degree in length.
    While viewed head on when it was ascending, it looked straight. But when
    it passed in front of me, I could clearly see the cloud was being deflected
    and trailing behind for a few degrees. It lasted for all of the pass.
    Could it be a water dump ???
    It was a great sight !
