Shape: Light
Duration:three seconds
One brillian pin-point of light appeared, without a trail or tail ,then dissappeared

Lying comfortably on a reclining lawn chair at 3:30 in the a.m.,I had awoken and was enjoying the clear sky and the few scattered clouds. Facing east, almost due east at about a thirty to fourty degree angle a brilliant flash of light occurred. I am not stating this was a craft, but it was certainly unlike any meteor i have witnessed for several reasons: (one) it had no trail, but appeared as a brilliant flash (2)that faded. No colors really...No smoke, no noise, no residuals.

slighty, into nothing. It could have been a star Nova!..i have no clue as to the distance...(3) the magnitude or luminescent--at least equal to the first magnitude star: Sirius,slightly less than Venus appears...

The thought occurred to me that it could have been a man-made satellite which was destroyed, or an exploded missile...Isn't anyone interested?...

My credentials as an objective, and clear-headed observor might be mentioned;for almost twenty years I was employed as a patent research specialist, examining drawings and diagrams at quite rapid speeds; my judgements and analysis based upon my perceptions of what i discerned fulfilled my vocation...
