Brief unusual star-like flareHi, after reading a story posted on the 8th april I thought something I saw relates to whatever they saw.Unfortunately, I cant say I saw a craft of any description, but it was quite odd.I was looking almost directly up, perhaps a little south, looking at the starry night, when all of a sudden almost exactly where I was looking, a bright light flared, it looked exactly like a bright star, not moving or anything. Just as abruptly as it appeared it went completely dark. The brightness did not last longer than a second or two but I cant be sure.The only thing I could think it was was a meteor coming straight at me from above, something I've never seen before. I stayed out for another half hour to see if it would happen again... sadly no. Not much of a report but I thought it worth mentioning.((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. PD))
