Brilliant light over the Catalinas

I was standing on my front porch looking north over the Catalina Mountains.

While standing there, I saw what looked like an exploding star or nova. A couple of things ran through my mind actually. I thought it was either a nova, a meteorite heading directly for me, or a flare of some sort. I have seen many flares, and none were ever blue/white.

The light got real bright and appeared to grow in size, it dropped slightly in elevation, and then flashed out.

I am only reporting this to see if anyone else witnessed it, or knew what it was.

((NUFORC Note: No Iridium flares reported for the date and time indicated by the witness. Please see the data from <>. PD))
