I don't know if this is the correct thread or not. I have under 20 posts so I can't create a new thread. But I would love to know what we just
Location: South-East Michigan (just outside Detroit). Watching the Western sky, 9:00p. There is a very bright blue-ish light in the sky, appears as
though it could be a planet or a very bright star against the blue sky (not quite nightfall). Approx. 65-75 degrees off the horizon. I was docking in
the laptop to connect to StarryNight to find out what it was, when all of the sudden (approx 9:15 EDT) it started to fade, then as we all watched (5
witnesses) it broke apart into 4 sections. I had my binoculars out and took a look, the front-most section had like a vapor trail behind it, almost
like a comet. Before we knew it (15 seconds later) all the lights were gone. Completely.
Did we just see something explode in space? I can't find anything about it on the net.
Now there is something else in the West sky that we can't quite figure out. Again, seems a planet or star. It is 9:30 now. Approx 30 degrees off the
horizon, yellowish in color. 1 brighter light and two dimmer lights. I'm going to see if I can get a better focus with my other Bushnells.
