Up there, in the sky

I've had some enquiries about a strange glowing cloud in the sky in the early morning. Actually lots of people saw it, according to this ABC report. Gordon Garrad (who took some cracking comet McNaught shots) got some pictures of the cloud, and thought for a while it was a rocket burn from the launch of the Themis satellite. There is a vigorous discussion on Ice in Space, and Gordon has been in touch with the Themis team, who reckon that it wasn't their ship.

So what is it? Odds are a rocket burn of some sort, but which one?
