Observer
NameDoug B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWe were driving when we saw it. Thought it was a firework, but there were no people nearby. Very bright, fell straight down toward horizon. I thought it was green, but my wife, in the passenger seat, said no. Probably I was just seeing it through the tinted window, which added color. It was July 4 evening, so the natural explanation was a firework. But there was no sign of anyone anywhere around.
