Observer
NameCaroline P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was very small in the sky, left a long narrow but bright trail, everything was only visible for few seconds. It was a very humid night so ambient light pollution appeared greater. It definitely looked yellowish against a medium blue clear sky. I saw it appear in the sky, but it went out of view (behind a house) when it exited my range of sight.
