Apparantly, it was hauling it's own moon.


Edited for spelling.

It wasn't bright enough to see with your naked eye.

Really?

I didn't go looking for it. But the timing seemed to be about right. Meh, just a guess.

The Death Star was just taking out another rebel alliance planet.

It was a Gamma Ray Burst. The gubmint won't tell us about it because they are moving all high-ranking personell and porn starlets to a secret location in order to preserve their precious bodily fluids while the rest of us die of skin cancer over the next year.

Death Star. They saw you looking, so they killed the lights. We're doomed.

I saw one, too!

My thought as well.

CSB



I've seen that kind of thing several times. I think it's a sun going Nova. There's a difference between a Nova and a SuperNova. When a star goes Nova it flares up as opposed to a SuperNova where it explodes.

One time, when I was out late at night, doing nothing in particular, I saw a Chevy Nova..

I guess this seems the most likely.

What is that thing?


I am not sure myself.

Meteorite or brain tumor; I hope it was the former.

Or that.

From wht I've read and the videos I saw I'm positive it was not an satellite reflecting sunlight as many have suggested.

So, instead of hoping it was the "prior" (meteorite), you chose to hope he has a brain tumor (the former)? Really?

Former and Latter.


Former comes first. Latter comes second. It's a common turn of phrase.

Could it have been an iridium flare from a satellite in geosynchronous orbit?

You have that backwards.

It's quite possible what you saw was an Iridium flare. If you weren't aware and actively watching for a predicted flare, just seeing one by accident, so to speak, the sudden burst of light would very much resemble what you saw. I've seen many such flares, both on purpose and by accident. Iridiums can be painfully bright, and of very short duration. I've also seen Iridium flares occur just seconds apart, quite close together in the sky.

Seeing a meteor come in head on to your line of sight is also a possibility, but the Iridium flare is much more likely. Any nova or supernova would have been detected by professional astronomers, and would be all over the news.

Um, no. Iridium satellites aren't geosynchronous.

Only Nova I saw last night was this one
