RemarksAbout 5-6 minutes later I saw what looked like something dropping straight down from the sky in the east. It did not streak across the sky like the first object. It was very bright orange in colour with a bright yellow tail. It looked sort of like a large elongated rain drop, rounded at the bottom with a tapered tail.
