Observer
NameThea L
Experience Level1/5
RemarksVery large bright object seen due west above the tree line moving from south to north for aprox 5 seconds -from my vantage point it seemed to be on a trajectory to have an impact a few miles in the distance. My first thought was that there must have been boaters in LI Sound that also saw it.
