Summary : AS WE WERE LINING UP OUR REFLECTOR TELESCOPE WITH POLARIS. SEEN SOMETHING HIT THE ATMOSPHERE, STOPPED FOR 2-5 SEC. AND DISAPPER. WITHOUT A TRACE.

IT LOOKED LIKE A REG. METEOR COMING INTO THE ATMOSPHERE BUT AFTER THE BURN, IT STAYED STILL FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN WE LOST SIGHT OF IT. RED IN COLOR, ROUND NO LIGHTS OF ANY KIND JUST A DULL GLOW. ONLY SEEN ONE ABOUT 1 1/2" WITH NAKED VIEW. THE NIGHT WAS CLEAR SORRY I CAN'T HELP MUCH, BUT WAS IN A HURRY TO SEE JUPITER. WE HEARD ABOUT IT ON ART BELL SO IF IT WAS SOMETHING, GREAT.
