Shape: Fireball
Duration:30 seconds
A very bright, pinkish colored object, slightly brighter than the northern star, was seen in broad daylight.

On Friday, May 9, 2015, shortly after 12:00 noon my daughter & I saw in the sky a very bright, pink-ish, orangey ‘thing’. Although it was in broad daylight, the object was very bright - slightly brighter than the northern star. It moved at a pace that a far off jet might move – slowly, but detectable.

After viewing for probably 30 seconds, it seemed to ‘throw off’ a couple of sparks, then disappeared.

We managed to get 2 pictures before it disappeared.
