This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1026-2018
Observer
NameRoss G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving north bound on the A1, when the object first appeared it looked like a low aircraft coming in to land but travelling way too fast. On the initial siting there was a faint orange/yellow shower surrounding the main object that turned to a bright white/blue/green. The object appeared unlike any meteor shower I've seen, and was distinctive by the width length and brightness of the trail. It travelled for approx 4-5secs before disappearing.
