RemarksTook dog out to go potty and within 2 minutes observed a bright object almost straight to the south at about 45 degrees above horizon. Lasted about 2-3 seconds. It wasn’t perfectly rounded. At the end it was quite large. Bright white to the outside blue to purple in the center. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.
