Very bright, and the sun ad just set. Sky was still bright. Yes, several. 5-10 It was pretty awesome. 10-20 times brighter than any i have ever seen, but im not an avid skywatcher.

14JUN2016 Lisa Pritchard Rome, NY United States approx 20:25 pm eastern time zone I just saw a small arc as it passed from behind a tree through the tree, and passed some roofs from east to west, right to left, I was facing approx north reds/oranges very bright and vivid, I'd say as bright as moon, but in oranges and reds not that I saw a bit smaller than the moon, but much larger than venus. Like a bright orange red ball of fire with a definite tail.

I was in my backyard doing yardwork and around 830pm in Orleans Ontario I saw a fireball in the sky with whoosh sound. First time I've seen this! Very cool!

I was in Dannemora Ny walking to the gas station and there was a big fire ball bigger than the moon on a good day! I Didn't know if it was a plane or or a meteor so i called the police. The dispatcher turned me over to the state police. she said she couldn't tell me what it was. She said i was the first to call it in. she did not know what to do. she asked me what she thought she should do! ha ha! it was bright orange,red, and yellow from what i remember. The tail was longer than a house, sky to ground. It seemed to pass between Lyon mountain and Dannemora. I turned my back to see if anyone else saw this and when i turned back around it was gone.
