Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian, this event is probably related to the shooting down of the U.S. satellite last night. I was outside checking on the progression of the lunar eclipse. I was looking away from the eclipse, scanning the night sky further to the right and up of Orion's belt (there are probably better reference points but I'm not very good at astronomy - I've also refrained from using compass directions as I'm unsure if I have them right. Sorry!) I suddenly saw what looked like an orange fireball, far off in the sky, like a shooting star but larger than usual, heading right to left for a short distance until it disappeared. The whole event only took a second or two and I was just lucky to be looking in the right area when it happened. My husband who was outside with me missed it as by the time I pointed it out to him, it was gone. I did not know at that time that the spy satellite had been shot down but we went inside and found out via the internet that it had occurred several hours earlier. I then suddenly realized I should check the time and it was a few minutes past nine. Based on the time given by the military, I think this was too late to have been the fuel tank exploding, and that what I saw was debris hitting our atmosphere and burning up. Thank you for listening.
