|Bishop planetarium ,luner eclipse, telscopes were set on saturn,jupiter and the moon.We were sitting under a covered set of tables when my friend exclaimed "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!" I then turned to the east and looked at the sky to see a red object with a tail across the sky suddenly lost the tail,turned white,blinked and disappeared.There were about60-75 other people there but only the 5 of us saw it.
one object with a tail was seen by 5 people, myself, my friend,and 3 other people in the eastern sky moving quickly,dropped the tail turned white blinked twice and disapppeared.Whatis ironic is that we were at Bishop PLanitarium for the luner eclipse with a news crew and all and they were just looking at a different area of the sky. My friend got up after seeing this to talk to people but I just knew the other people were too involved in looking at the planets and did not see the object we saw zooming across the sky.My friend is a nurse and I am a retired machinist.
