Observer
NameLaura W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWe were in a car and talking and did not notice any sound, but both of us in the car stopped talking and said “did you see that?!” It was a quick, very short streak of bright green light that did a little burst/got a little bigger at the finish. It did not travel a long distance across the sky. More like a fast neon green light that dropped down and maybe slightly to the left.
