Observer
NameKimberly B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was pretty wild. At first I thought a plane was falling quickly out of the sky. Then after it disappeared completely, I thought I might have been a comet or falling star. Then, because it seemed so low to me, I thought it might have been 1 firework. So, I went home and posted on Facebook, asking if anyone else in the area saw anything. My cousin responded, saying her Philadelphia and NJ friends were also posting about a sighting in the sky.
