A star turned very bright and then fade away in the southern early mourning sky.

At 6 am in the southern sky about 30 degrees up one of the stars seemed to suddenly glow very bright and then slowly fade away to nothing. The whole event took about 5 to 10 seconds.


We suspect the witness may have observed the flare of an Iridium satellite. PD
