|large, bright (shooting star?) moved quickly low on horizon; bigger, brighter, slower than a normal shooting star.
At approximately 12:35 am on Oct. 31, 2017, I was outside in my yard. A bright light caught my attention. It was fairly low on the horizon, and also was a bit slower than any shooting star Iíve ever seen, and much bigger, and brighter. Still the whole event lasted only seconds. It moved quickly and seemed to recede below horizon.
Probably a shooting star, but it was pretty weird. I am just an ordinary person, with virtually no astronomy knowledge. I just felt compelled to report this as it freaked me out a little.
