Visibility III / V
The "star flight" or ball of light was very bright. It was visible for 1-2 seconds. For a moment I thought it was the light of an airplane. The ball of light came just straight from top to bottom towards the surface of the earth. The direction was east of the sighting point (the yard of my home). I checked the direction with a compass. The light went out just before it went behind the ridge of my neighboring house.
