Huge orange flash of light from satellite going over .

Went out on the back porch at around 6:30 pm, and looked up to a clear sky. I saw what looked to be a satellite going over and then a huge flash from it. I think it could have been an explosion with an orange color of light.

At first i thought it was a reflection from the sun, but it was too big for that at that far up. The satellite continued across the sky and out of sight.


Possible flare from an Iridium satellite? PD
