I am currently writing another thread in a different section when I JUST went out for a cigarette, to think of how I want to relay the information I
am setting up.
(I always look up when I have a smoke because I like watching for shooting stars).
I just watched what I thought was a plane, float across the sky in a perfectly line (nothing weird there) as I do live near an international airport
and I know what planes look like and what they sound like.
It was as bright as a shooting star (burn magnesium and stand about 25 feet away or as bright as a far off welder I guess) But it was going much MUCH
slower then a shooting star hence why I thought I was watching an airplane.
It was heading from west to east approx. and I watched it for a solid minute. At about the 40 second mark I asked someone to come outside and see
what they thought, after about 10 seconds of watching it died out.
It went from bright white -> orange -> red -> brown within the last 2 seconds of its life.
It was as if someone slowly downed down a "dimmer" switch. It didnt make a sound.
Whatever it was, I was in awe(sp?).
Tied for first place with the greatest shooting star Ive ever seen (only because it lasted so long, atleast a full minute.
