    A nova or supernova would not account for the conditions you describe.  I would 
    say it was either of your other two options, or passing cloud.

    After the ISS pass was observed, the universe began to fall apart.
         
    I noticed that Orion's belt and sword was invisible, but this was not 
    immediately jolting, considering that my glasses were off.  I put my 
    glasses back on - and an extreme surprise resulted.  Orion has 4 corner 
    stars of great brightness.  Only one on top and one on bottom was 
    visible.  Everything else in the constellation was invisible.  Now there 
    were thin clouds - but I could see a lot of other stars and a Moon in the 
    sky.  'Till 2:45, the condition remained the same.  Except that Gemini 
    and Aldebaran (sp?)  were in different positions than in my star atlas.
         
    There is only three possible rational explanations for this:
         
    1)  A nova/supernova occured.
         
    2)  I was temporarily insane.
         
    3)  I was delirious.
         
    Can anyone help me?  Has anyone seen the Orion constellation in the last 
    12 hours?
         
    P.S.:  This is not a joke, if anyone thinks it is.  I really saw (or 
    rather didn't see) what I have written above.
         
    Thanks!
