HBCC UFO Research Note: Since this sighting happened today, September 29, 2008 and in the wee hours of the morning. I am sure there would have been alot of folks who witnessed this. If so would you be kind enough to send in your detailed report of what you saw. You are welcome to send the report through the website or email me directly. I sure would appreciate any help on this. Thank you, Brian.

Full Description of event/sighting: This has great similarity to the Fresno, CA report of June 14, 2008, so I thought it would be appropriate to enter this information. Early Monday morning, I had just returned to bed after being up briefly, and suddenly noticed light entering through the bedroom window - while my eyes were still closed. I opened my eyes to see an extremely bright "meteor" to the West of me, heading North or Northwest. I immediately sat up and watched it for several seconds until the light extinguished. Over that period of several (est. 2-3) seconds, it traveled about 25-30 deg. across the sky, which seems a little slow for a meteor. It was far more brilliant than any meteor I've seen before, by at least an order of magnitude, if not two. It maintained steady speed and direction while I was observing it. Its apparent trajectory was descending slightly, and when I first saw it, thought it could be an aircraft in trouble. There was no accompanying sound (although I was indoors, of course). It could have been re-entering space debris, but then that's an odd direction for a satellite to be moving in.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
