Observer
NameDan K
Experience Level2/5
RemarksSteady, very light red/pink. Appeared like a bright centered, small fuzzball. Not at all what I expect a fireball to look like, but have no other explanation. Lower, very thin, diffuse clouds. Watched from straight overhead, directly from South to North. Thought maybe a plane or helicopter, flying through the diffuse clouds, but light was steady, no blinking at all and moving too fast. Thought maybe satellite, but too big, too bright, and again, too fast. Gone in no more than 20 seconds. At the end, it seemed to fade to a pinpoint, fade completely, then return as a pinpoint for a couple of seconds before disappearing a little less than 30° above the northern horizon. I have seen two brilliant green meteors from this location over the last twenty years... They both moved even more quickly than this object. (3-4 seconds). The sky is wide open to the north and east of this location.
