Tonight I saw something that I cannot explain. At approximately 2042 CDT I saw a red, circular flash in the left leg of Orion, halfway between Alnitak and Saiph. It's duration was approximately .5 sec and covered approximately 1/2 degree . It was a translucent brilliant red. It disappeared suddenly. I continued to watch the area for a few minutes but saw nothing else. I did see a fireball about 5 minutes before moving from SE to NW. The circular flash was not related I think, since it didn't move, and there was no trail or other after image.
Any input would be appreciated!
Wasn't sure where to post this, feel free to move, mods.
I was thinking the same thing, but the flash was perfectly circular, unlike other debris falls I have seen.
