Observer
NameRon C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe object was fairly bright and larger and low above the horizon. I initial thought it was a metallic balloon reflecting the sunlight, but it moved horizontally way too fast. I then thought it might have been a plane or drone reflecting the sunlight, but it appears to burn out and completely disappear as it moved horizontally across the sky over a matter of about three seconds. It only moved 3 or 4 inches across the span of my car windshield ( I was stuck in standstill traffic when I witnessed it).
