Viewed from Columbia, SC, it was in the eastern sky, about mid-way up. I only saw it for a few seconds, so I could not zero in on it. It happened around 8 PM on Sunday, 3-14-05. The flash looked like a bright orange star, then it quickly began to dim until it dissapeared. What is odd is that it did not move or have a tail, unlike several meteors that I saw burn up.
