    Dear all,
    I observed the reentry through a gap in nthe clouds at 16:26 UTC from Heidelberg, Germany, out of a driving car. Spectacular is just not the right word. Hundreds of glowing fragments, smoke trail, once in a lifetime show, christmas special.

    Multiple reports from the east of the Netherlands of a very slow bright 
    fragmenting object low in the west-southwest near 16:26 UTC.
    The Soyuz r/b from the recent launch to ISS is a candidate.
    Alas, it was clouded out here in the west of the Netherlands....
