|Bright flash of light in southern sky seen from far north Fort Worth.
Approx. 2330hrs on 1 August 06, I was standing in my back yard facing south (almost exactly 180 degrees). A flash of light more brilliant than anything I have seen before appeared almost directly in front of me (maybe 2 or 3 degrees to the west of where I was facing) and was moving downward. It disappeared less than 2-3 seconds after it appeared. No other witnesses. I did call the local FD, assuming it may have been kids with fireworks. Within 20 minutes, I began to hear sirens from emergency vehicles and PD choppers were circling that area of the sky.
