Observer
NameFrancoise J
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe line didn't appear to be a straight line, it appeared to be a little messy, for lack of a better term. The initial light was super strong and only lasted a fraction of a second, but it was strong enough that even though I was looking down at my bed, getting back in after letting the dogs out, it got my attention. At first, I thought it was the flashlight on my phone crossing into my line of vision, but then I looked up and out the window and saw the streak of white shooting through the sky. No sound at all.
