In 1990 mid-summer I was repairing damaged fence line on my North forty in Broken Arrow OK. I usually camp at the site when I have large repairs to do. At about 2:00am my horses started running back and forth and the cattle began caterwauling. I thought coyotes had came for a calf.
Then the animals became dead silent; they didn't even move. It became completely silent, I couldn't hear anything. Then all of a sudden it became almost completely lit up like it was 9:00am, to the north. It looked like the sun was coming up.
I ran back to the camp and grabbed my camcorder and started filming. Please keep in mind that it was around 2:00am and the sun was many hours from rising. I panned the camera around and the look on my animals was strange. They look as if in a trance-- no reaction at all, almost as if they were in a state of shock. The fireball went higher and higher until out of sight. After it was gone, the animals went on as if nothing happened. I could not even guess how far away it was, it looked as if the sun decided to rise at 2:00am. From the time I first saw the light till it vanished was about 5 to 8 minutes.
I have had this video for some time now, but didn't want to bring any unwanted attention to myself. I have shortened up the video clip because of size but the look on the animal's faces gives me a chill to this day.
I believe what is seen here was a Pegsat satellite release of vaporized barium. There were two releases, one at 4/16/90 and one at 4/25/90. These releases were performed over the southern portion of central canada near the US border while the satellite was about 335 kilometers altitude. I watched one of the releases from Boulder Colorado. It was quite spectacular, and actually created a "smoke ring" and was very bright. I was the CRRES spacecraft systems engineer. Pegsat used two of our canisters. From Oklahoma, the releases would've appeared somewhat low onear the northern horizon in the really early morning.

Wow that was amazing , fantastic footage.Surley far to bright for a fuel dump from a sat 335 km up.And he said it lasted up to 8 mins.The space shuttle launch would be more like it.The first few seconds of the film the thing lights up the whole sky.
