Hello David,

It's not clear that the meteor shower explanation can be so
casually dismissed, at least from the information provided in
the article.

What was the nature of the "maneuver" referred to in the last
sentence above? The preceeding portion of the article only
describes a generic west-to-east transit of the objects.

Thanks for any info,
