I own a small farm in rural north Georgia and enjoy walks late in the evenings: star gazing, listening to frogs around the pond, smelling the honeysuckle and sweet plum blossoms; all the things that make living on the farm such a wonderful experience. Last night - 5/28/09 at about 10:30 - a brilliant pinpoint of light, high in the southeastern sky, gathered then faded out completely in a matter of seconds. This light was unquestionably the brightest in the sky! From the pinpoint of this brilliant light were rays as sharp as needles eminating in all directions. I stood transfixed watching this event and could not discern whether this object had any motion, although initially I thought it might. In a few moments after realizing that perhaps I just witness a celestial event that few people have ever experienced, I ran into the house and told my wife of my experience. We both began to comb the internet for breaking news, but only found references to earlier supernova detection. As of this morning, much to my disappointment, there are no references to the event I witnessed. As a lay cosmologist, I have a fairly good knowledge of the cosmos and stand by the belief that what I saw had to be a deep space event; possibly a supernova.
