|An usual co-incidence with an amazing bright sphere falling or just moving towards the ground.
I had departed my place of work at 7pm Oct. 31 and Halloween evening. I had noticed that there was a half moon in the very dark South East sky. I drove North from SW 74th on Santa Fe street towards SW 59th and about half the distance I suddenly saw a very bright very white spherical object seem to move very fast at a descending angle of about sixty degrees towards the East. It lasted about three to four seconds and then vanished. I thought it could not be a meteor because it was so bright and white and I have seen many meteors in my time. It may have been something that crashed but lost its brilliance before doing so. Just a few hours earlier I was taking to a man about the year 1958 and I had said that that was the year that the Russians had managed to launch a satellite into Earth orbit … it was called 'Sputnik'. But the next day (Nov. 1St today) I looked it up on Wikipedia and found out it was launched in 1957 and fell to Earth in 1958. Anyway! it seems like an odd coincidence that I would even have the discussion about the first satellite, __ and then just hours later see this strange brilliant white object move in the dark sky.
