Experience Level1/5
RemarksI didnt know these daytime objects were possible. The sky was blue, hardly any clouds, maybe a dew whispy clouds way up high. I looked up to see 5 jets heading south, all contrails visible white, thin line, in place for a while in the sky. The flash of light I saw seemed very close to the earth I was afraid it had crashed.
