Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
A previous report of a very bright light was a satellite.

IN October 1998 I reported a very bright light in the north sky that lasted about 2 or three seconds. In December of '98 I watched a satellite travel south to north. As it reached the northern horizon it suddenly became a point of light (about the size of a pencil eraser lasting about 2 to 3 seconds) so bright it hurt my eyes to look at it and it lit the ground. Now I see lots of reports of this light being observed. Bet it is a mirror satellite. Regards, ((name deleted)
