I woke up about 4:00 this morning; fed the cats; and decided to go get a newspaper and a cup of coffee.As I was getting into my car, (about 4:35am), when I noticed a bright light in the sky to the east. My first thought was that it was Venus but it was about twice the normal size of Venus. Then blackness started in the center of the object and spread out until the object was gone. The whole sighting didn't last more than about eight or ten seconds with it disappearing in about 1 second. I first thought that some clouds must have passed over it so I continued to look. Then I realized I could see stars and that there were were no clouds in that direction. I waited about a minute to see if it would reappear but the only other thing I saw was a streak of bright light about 3 degrees to the right of the original sighting. I took the second sighting to be a meteorite. The brightest star in the sky where I saw the phenomena was Hamal but the sighting was much bigger and brighter. There was no sound.Later in the day I took a photo of the sky where I saw the phenomena and put a lens flare on it to show the approximate size and position.
