RemarksIt was the most amazing thing ever. I was surprised I didn't hear contact. It was at least the size of the rising sun, maybe bigger. I've seen shooting stars in the sky before but this was extraordinary. I just happened to have been on my front porch. I estimate the time to be around 10 pm at night. It was very yellow and you could see along the back and bottom it, it glowed red. Absolutely amazing.
