There is no decay candidate between Feb 24 and March 02, 2005.
I think Geir is very sincere and do not call him a liar. Still this does
just NOT look like a meteor. I've seen many telescopic meteors on Spacewatch
and NEAT images, and our DMS photographed thousands of meteors with small
optics. This is just not looking like a meteor, although I do not know what
it is. It is a mystery object.
