I made a UFO report online to NUFORC after seeing a chevron ,“V”, shaped UFO (at 20:23), and had just finished sending a drawing when I went out to my back yard. I always look at the stars, and had been outside for about 30 seconds when I noticed what appeared to be a meteorite travel from the South – East to the North – East. The object followed a shallow arc towards the Earth. I was surprised to see that when it approached the area slightly under Cassiopeia it made somewhat of a “U” turn and went up and to the East and disappeared with a slight flash.

The object had the same brightness you would see from a meteorite – and the flash was brighter than the moon.

The object was white.
