BemerkungenI am 53 years old and have always been interested in astronomy. I have used inferior telescopes or binoculars, but I finally purchased a decent telescope in April. I was outside observing Jupiter and Saturn. Although seeing conditions were poor for viewing, I was practicing my skill at locating the Andromeda Galaxy in my light polluted area. I had seen a couple meteors that night, so this was distinctly different. I missed seeing the first light directly, but it illuminated my view. It was above and to my left as I was facing NW. The brightness and the orange color were so shocking to me. It was amazing!

BemerkungenIt is difficult to judge because I was staring NW at the location of the Andromeda Galaxy with binoculars when the flash is what I noticed first nearly 90 % above. I was initially stunned by the bright white light that drew my attention despite looking through binoculars. When I looked up and turned North, I saw a wide stretch of white light with orange in the middle. The width was expanding and then a greatly expanded at its termination. I thought that I may have heard very faint, distant rumblings similar to thunder, but it was difficult to sure due to the trucks that travel on Interstate 80/90. It seemed to travel straight North. It was difficult to judge the angle downward because it appeared overhead. It seemed close to parallel to the Earth's surface, which may be due to not directly observing initially.
