Remarks It glowed and then quickly disappeared. I was completely caught off guard and my husband who was walking with me missed it since he was looking a different direction. That is how quick it was. By the time I figured out I was watching one of the coolest "shooting stars" I have ever seen, it was gone. My height estimates and such may be off. I wasn't really thinking about all of that.
