Shape: Fireball
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
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.

((NUFORC Note: Possible flare from an Iridium satellite? PD))
