I only submit this because of the increased number of sky sightings the past 10 days- what I saw was the largest shooting star [?] that I have ever seen- direct NORTH about 50 degrees UP from the horizon- a slow arc that looked like something out of DISNEY- beautiful GOLDEN fireball shape with July 4th _ type peripheral mini-flares surrounding the solid glowing center. Not like any shooting star I have ever seen except in exaggerated artists' renderings.

see above The size is the outstanding phenomenon - about the size of a basketball from where I was observing- looked for references to other CA sighting of same phenomenon but have not heard anything. The date is accurate, the time may be a bit off....
