Occurred : 7/27/1999 05:10 (Entered as : 07/27/99 05:10am)
Reported: 7/27/1999 08:35
Posted: 8/10/1999
Location: Canon City, CO
Shape: Flash
Duration: approx 30 sec.
While enjoying my am coffee and waiting for the sunrise, I was looking toward the southwest, when suddenly near one last remaining star there was a burst of flashes.

The star was one of the sparklers, red green blue type in the southwestern sky. The first flash looked like it came right out of the star, then another flash a little further away and again another flash further, total of 5 or 6 flashes, then moved westerly with a few more flashes. All of the flashes were extremely brilliant. I watch the sky a lot, have seen something smillier a few years ago, but not as brilliant.
