RemarksI couldn't get my exact location or where I saw the object using the maps provided. It was extremely clear and close to me, I watched it fly above the tree tops left to right, almost seemingly shooting into the tree tops near the Whistle Stop Trail, behind the hospital I work at. I've never seen anything like this! It was beautiful!
