RemarksIt was bright and bigger than Venus in the sky.. About 6 Venus's together actually a bit bigger than that.. It was quick but it happened as I was walking on the Bridge where I live.. I always look up in the night sky to look at planes , the moon, the stars and I was showing my daughter's the big dipper.. The big dipper was to my right and the fire ball was in front.. As I was scanning the sky from my right to the front of me which would be west , that's when I saw the bright glowing fire ball.. It disappeared behind the mountain in front of me a ways..
