Observer
NameMike B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe object was at my Zenith straight above me, stationary never moved, no streak or flash and seemed outside our atmosphere. Looked like a star until it grew larger in luminosity in a perfect circle. The light seemed to collapse back and the object disappeared. My thought was I witnessed a star exploding.
