04) What compass direction did the object disappear to? e.g. north
05) How long, in seconds, were you able to see it in the sky?
06) How many degrees off the horizon was it when it appeared?
(eg, a closed fist at arm's length is 10 degrees)
07) How many degrees off the horizon was it when it disappeared?
08) How bright was it? (star, Venus, Moon)
09) Did you see any colour(s)?
10) Did it split apart? What did that look like?
11) Did it leave a trail in the sky after it was gone? How long did that last?
