DescriptionIt was 9:10 and I was looked up and see something strange, A cloud but was not exactly a cloud. It was shining blue and move fast. At that time there was no sunshine to bright that. So that was the shine of itself. After jast 20 min my friend, Asghar Kabiri was saw that 900 km away from Tehran in Sa'adat shahr. There is many reports from many other places of Iran like Semnan, Asalooye and etc. So, It was too high. that was shining like Comet McNaught and the brightest point was -3 Mag.
Note: NASA confirmed the object was a rocket stage expelling its unspent fuel.
