Observer
NameKristeen I
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt wasn’t going very fast. Which I thought was odd. It momentarily got significantly brighter right before it fizzled out. I saw the object to my right, as I was driving south on route 219 in Springville NY. It stunned me for a moment, as I have never seen anything quite as big and bright as this in the night sky. It was bright neon green, and beautiful. Something I’m glad I got to witness. The object only lasted maybe 2 seconds, 3 at the very most.
