Observer
NameJaren M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI reported this incident promptly after experiencing it. It definitely entered our atmosphere as it descended with a long, very wide tail... Only for a few seconds did the trail last then it just became a glowing orb, much like a plane. I stand firm when I say that I watched it sort of level out with the horizon, almost as if it corrected it's trajectory and curve back up towards space. Just as it starts to curve a buddy of mine and myself watched in awe as it disappeared. Keep in mind it was not crossing over us as it decended, but flying away. As bright white, orange, pink and yellow this "meteor" was, when it was noticed by myself, my girlfriend and friend witnessed it, it seemed so close. It was roughly 2 minutes after disappearing did we hear and noticeabley feel 3 popping boom rumbles through the environment. Truly amazing. Covering it up as a test missile or seattle light launch with a green aura is ridiculous. It was not ascending at all. Whatever it was... I fear in happiness
