ObservationUnknown
RemarksI was laying down on the parking lot looking straight up into space. I was alone at that time, 3am, in the parking lot. laying on my back, looking straight up into outer space, a bright yellow explosion happened like a 4 of July firework explosion. I don't remember the exact date, however it was around 2005. what I would like to know is what are the exact odds of seeing something like that happen. or like you said, its not possible to know what those odds are because few people are going to be laying on their backs at 3am looking into space an report it.
