Email from Bill Butler NE Alabama...
I am a fifty eight year old man who lives on Keel Mountain (Jackson County)
in Northeast Alabama. Sometime around 8:30 last night I took my dog out for
her nightly walk and in the east northeast horizon I saw a large extremely
bright light that had a rather short very bright tail. As soon as I saw it
and because of its size and brightness I thought it was either a meteorite
or large space junk. Bill Butler
