RemarksI am somewhat uncertain of the time. I was in the back yard working on a late night chore, walked up the driveway and casually gazed up at the almost full moon. At first, I thought it was an airplane, somewhat below and to the right of the moon, moving quickly from right to left. I then realized it was a "shooting star," but larger and brighter than usual. The color was also unusual --orange and reddish. I went back to my task and didn't think to record the exact time until about a half hour later. It went from right to left, somewhat below and to tge right of the moon, but I can't recall for certain if it was traveling a little downwards or a little upwards as it went from right to left. I think downwards. Total duration was only about a second. I don't know if this was actually a fireball. I did see a fireball, once, over Kansas--much larger, greenish, made a hissing sound, and left a persistent, glowing trail. No doubt about that one! This was much smaller, but still much larger and brighter than the usual meteors I see.
