Nevertheless a great daylight fireball (-15 to -17 magnitude) was
observed over northern Poland on 13/06/2006 at 17:10 - 17:20 UT. It
caused strange sonic boom which was heard even 60km from trajectory.
Here is a rough trajectory based on several visual reports.
(Red squares on the map - visual sightings, green - places where sonic
boom was heard).
Initial velocity probably exceeds 30km/s..
