|Object lights up sky then large fireball
It was about 3am and I woke up and went to the restroom and then got a drink. I looked at the clock then closed my eyes to go back to sleep. I sleep facing a large patio door that is covered with light blocking drapes.
To my surprise seconds after closing my eyes I awoke to brilliant light as if it was daytime outside. Then a large orange fireball seemed to float across the sky outside my patio door. The ball disappeared and my room returned to darkness.
Shaken I went and opened the drapes and the door. It was quiet outside and dark. No sign of the light or large ball the followed. Not even a sound during this event. I am not sure if it was a meteor but it sure scared the hell out of me.
To my surprise I checked the news to see if anyone else reported seeing this and nothing was reported. I live in SE Topeka near Lake Shawnee. I was really surprise that no one else seen this.
