Hi guys I think it was on tuesday or wed night about 10pm I saw a bright light thought at first it was a plane light. I quickly realised it was moving way too fast and leaving a smoke trial light up by the low eastern moon in the sky. It lasted longer than usual maybe a good 5 seconds i reakon. Might have been space juck to i guess.

I hope this wasn't the Johannes Kepler ATV but me thinks it may have been .

I didnt see the one in question but I HAVE seen 2 fireballs in the sky now. Both have been in the eastern sky @ 0630-0700 and yes both have been very spectacular and fascinating. Shame I couldnt take pics of them
