This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1008-2018
Observer
NameEleanor W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving at the time but slowed as I caught sight of it in my left periphery. I had to lean forward and crane my neck a little to see it as it was high over the car, it travelled from my next to right and then burnt out. I wasn't sure what it was. I wondered if it had been a firework but I am in a rural area and it's very unlikely anyone would set off 1 lone firework on a Thurs eve. Also I didn't hear any firework noise. And it seemed a bit too far away, and the fragmentation made me think it wasn't.
