Bright Shooting Star With Red Tail Seen Over Halifax Nova Scotia

Date:  January 26, 2012
Time:  Approx: 10:00 p.m.
Hello, I saw a very bright shooting star with a bright red tail at about 2 minutes after 10:00 p.m. Thursday Jan 26, 2012.
I was on 11th floor of a condo building off Spring Garden Road in Halifax, Nova Scotia, looking SSE high over Fenwick towers on Fenwick street and it lasted long enough to get off couch and go to window.
It then just disappeared/lights out. It was traveling in SSE direction and in a direction towards the harbour and towards MacNabs Island. I did not have a sense of it descending, it was going across the sky.

  1. I did see something in the winter, might of been that night, not sure did was bluish white with red tail. I cant remember if it was the same night or not. It was at night some time between 6pm and 10pm. It was very bright and it was going as fast as a shooting star, but fast enough that you could see it for a few seconds as opposed to a second or two. Location Sydney,Cape Breton going opposite direction of Glace Bay.
