Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was incredibly bright which is what caught my attention . I was a passenger in a vehicle at the time so I had an opportunity to watch it as soon as it got into my field of view. I have never seen anything like that before. My husband witnessed it near the end when I brought it to his attention. When it ended it looked like it blew up in a flash of red and silver and disappeared.
