Shape: Flash
Duration:15 seconds
Bright flash over Central Ohio

Around 4:30AM on Thursday March 28, I saw a bright red flash directly overhead at about my 12 o'clock. Several seconds passed and I expected to see another flash as if it were an airplane, but it took almost 10 seconds before I saw another super bright red flash in the western sky. There was no sound.

I have seen many meteors and know what the planets look like. I am actively interested in avaition and can identify most types of planes. I have seen a day time fireball and this was not that as it was a bright flash. It did not intensify like an Iridium satellite, or reentry of space junk. For 30 years, I have been looking at the sky and this one has me stumped.
