George,

"Then it happened, for about two to three seconds a fireball
streaked across the sky, from east to west, and disappeared."

This is the part that sounds like a meteor.

>"I continued to gaze up when I saw what appeared to be a dim star
>slowly moving. It suddenly got brighter and brighter until it

This is the part that could be a classic description of the
flare of an Iridium satellite.


Clear skies,

Bob Young
