|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 <www.heavens-above.com>. PD))
