I was looking up at the big dipper and noticed how in the past months it had moved from the neighbors side of the street to our side and that it was sitting lower in the sky. At that time, the most brilliant (I thought was a shooting star) traveled by with an amazingly long white glowing tail and the "ball" that was orange w/a bit of red at the bottom. It disappeared right in the middle of the (cup) between the 4 stars of the big dipper. Amazingly bright! So cool!
