Default Light in the sky?

Last night, Friday the 24th around 11PM we were frolicking in the hot tub on Braun bay. There was a big, I mean BIG white light with a contrail that fell from the sky in the east. It came from north to south with a downward angle.

I mean this was no normal shooting star. It was big.

Did anyone ease see this?

Default Wow!

Perhaps the big light episode was connected with the frolicking. 🤤

Sounds like it might have been space junk

Default skylights

Sounds like a particularly large (>20 m) meteor called a "bolide". These produce a very bright contrail which can be seen during the day. They also occasionally explode in a very bright fireball and/or produce enough debris for an impact. Two impacts that are famous are the so-called "Tunguska" event in Siberia and the "Chelyabinsk" event, also in Siberia, five years ago. Google "bolide" for more info.

Default Frolicking

How long had you been "frolicking" and was alcohol involved?
