DENVER FIREBALL:  A spectacular fireball streaked over Denver, Colorado,
this morning.  Observers described it as "brilliant, slow, twinkling,
sparkly and full of rainbow colors."  Contrary to some reports, it was
not a Quadrantid meteor.  It was the decaying body of a Russian rocket
that launched the French COROT space telescope on Dec. 27th. Links to
video and a ground track may be found at

Now we know what a malfunctioning rocket looks like when it burns up.
