Observer
NameGuy B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI just saw a very brightly colored (orange yellow magenta and maybe green) dual fireball heading from south to north, all happening to my east, not highly elevated, maybe 10 degrees above horizon. Slow. Wavy, colored trail behind it. Got brighter then Faded out at the end; no boom a la Chelyabinsk.Reminded me of kniphofia (sp?) (red hot poker) flowers. Occurred at About 11:42 pm just as I walked outside from the warming cabin at Hopewell!The path it took was nearly horizontal, and at first I thought it was a commercial airline plane, but no.I’ve been told that colors like that are usually from paint chips from some space vehicle. If I’d had had my glasses on it would have been clearer, but I’m able to see fairly well tho not perfectly without them.Anybody else see it?GuySent from my iPho
