Duration: 3-5 seconds
21:09 Bright light NNW sky3-7 seconds

At aprox. 21:09 CST my wife and I observed a spot in the NNW sky just about 7:00 from the North star.

The light quickly grew to the size and brightness of what looked to me to be a large explosion (40.000-70,000ft) it came it faded.

The event took long enough that I had time to react, tell my wife, reach for benocs, try to get it in focusfail and still see the object dim away.

The light did not seem to move. I tried to scan the area for smoke or reflective particals but saw nothing.

( ) At the risk of sounding stupid the size of the event to me seemed to be the size of the brackets at the beginning of this sentence.
