Details:
Early this morning I was at Devils Tower watching for Orionid Meteors. This bright streak was in 2 frames and lacks the typical colors of a meteor which means it was probably a satellite flare.

The zodiacal light also made an appearance, brighter than Ive ever seen it before. The diffuse glow stretched all the way from the eastern horizon to the zenith before astronomical twilight started. The crystal clear fall air and very dark skies made it very prominent.
