Full Description of event/sighting: Hi, I live in St. Thomas, USVI, and I was returning from dropping a friend home at about 3:45 in the morning. I parked the car and began to walk to my gate when I saw toward the south-southwest direction a bright bluish/white streak of light lasting no more than a second. I am used to seeing plenty of meteor streaks around here because we have very little light pollution. I have never seen one this color, or as bright. It definitely was something entering the atmosphere and it seemed closer than anything I've seen. In a strikingly similar event about a year ago, me and a friend were sitting on my front balcony. I was facing south and my friend was facing the east. We were talking and then all of a sudden out of the corner of my eye to the east/northeast, I notice the sky light up and my friend kind of ducked a bit at the same time. I turned instantly and caught the very end of what looked to me as if someone shot a blue roman candle from the sky, heading south. I stated that it looked like some one had shot off some fireworks, and all my friend kept saying was "that didn't look like fireworks at all". I can't recall the exact date of this one though.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
