This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3638-2014
Observer
NameGabrielle B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was in a moving car at the time; tried to give you the best approximation I could. I was in the backseat of the car and the two people in the front didn't see it; we looked for it after getting out of the car a few minutes later and couldn't find it. At first I thought it was a firework; then I was very concerned I'd hear a crash; neither happened, but it was a brilliant streak - it looked like a comet that was also a flame, obviously incredibly hot and blue with a brilliant fire trail. Really cool experience!
