This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3068-2017
Observer
NameDave B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was initially extremely bright like a bolt of lightening nearby they the sky was lit up like someone had turned on a bright light Twice to three times as bright as the full moon (which it nearly was). There was a lot of smoke in the immediate area due to forest fires so I am guessing at the trajectory based on the brightness of the sky and not direct visualization of the ball itself.
