Noticed something 10deg above the horizon
at 0130, 190deg azimuth.  At 0131 debris trail 10-15deg
elevation, 200 to 210deg azimuth. At 0132 it was at
290deg azimuth, 35-40deg elevation.  At this point, the
object was barely visible.

Strange.

From a satellite observing list:

"As Jonathan McDowell reported earlier, the re-entry of 1973-084D / 6939 was seen from the southeastern U.S.A. on 2015 Jun 29 near 05:30 UTC (01:30 EDT). It was the Blok-L stage of the Cosmos 606 launch. Empty mass 1160 kg."

Next up on History channel, mysterious object seen burning up in Virginia. Could it have been Bigfoot and Hitler piloting a UFO, on their way into the bremuda triangle?

It was a satellite who self identifies as a meteorite.

I made it in okay. Got a little toasty there for a minute, but when doesn't it? Am I right?

Thanks for noticing.

The longest meteor steaks I've seen have been 4-6 seconds.

This one was visible for 3 minutes, maybe.  

It started out looking like Mars was in the wrong part of
the sky.  Then looked like a plane climbing out of ROA, 50
miles to the south, but too orange for aircraft lights.  I was
probably watching it for close to a minute before I could
begin to see the trail of sparks (for lack of a better term).

It always makes me wonder when pilots/astronauts/credible trained individuals see stuff that they cannot explain. Sure they're subject to stress, and lights refract/reflect with the atmosphere; but there's gotta be some really cool (or terrifying) shit going on.

That long and trailing debris, it was a booster or stage making re-entry. Most likely.

I've seen similar twice and both times it was Soviet / Russian boosters burning up on re-entry. Pretty spectacular.

I had my cell phone, but the video is worthless at night.  I sometimes have my camera and tripod with me, but not last night / this morning.  I was just letting my dogs out one last time for the night.

This whole thing started with me thinking, "hmmm, what in hell is Mars doing over there?"  The relative motion was near zero long enough that I was trying to figure out what star this was, because I had never seen it before, and it wasn't in our orbital plane with the other planets.  That went on for about a minute, before the round, red/orange "star" stared elongating in shape - I even pulled my eyeglasses off to wipe them thinking it was being caused by lens scum.  After maybe 20 seconds of noticing the slightly elongated shape, that's when it started to leave a pronounced trail with the first sign of ablation, or whatever you call it.

Here's a photo from roughly where I was standing, but this photo looks to the SSE, whereas this morning's debris originated in the SSW.  The crazy green streaks in this photo are fireflies.

It on the Atlanta news stations as seen in Ga, AL, FL, TN and SC and now Va, Atlanta TV stations have some video of it...there s a NASA Sky Watch Cam there that caught it...probably a big piece of space junk or ISS decided to commit suicide cause the supply ship blew up and no snacks...
