I was setting up last night for Saturn viewing /imaging. I was going thru a 3x star alignment routine ( don't ask why, just fancied it), just aligned on Regulus and took my eyes away from the Telrad just in time to see a fantastic fireball fly thru from NE-ish Ursa Major across to Castor Pollux region.
That was a first !!! Quite spectacular :icon_eek:and surprised to see how bright it was !!By Eck it was fair moving thru the sky, sooooooo fast with a brilliantly bright tail.:glasses1:
No it wasn't an Iridium Flare, moved far too fast !!
