Observer
NameMichelle L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksWe were leaving a restaurant and I was driving and truly just *happened* to be looking up while turning around. I was unsure about what I had seen and told my boyfriend (who is British and therefore unexcited about anything - ha) but he hadn’t seen and didn’t seem impressed. It traveled fast and it wasn’t that it disappeared from view, it just seemed to burn out, like a falling star, but it was way too big and the wrong color to be a star. If a star is a marble, this was a golf ball.
