Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have not seen it on the reports. I submitted one on the day. I can’t believe nobody saw this other than me. I will never see anything like this again that’s for sure. Is it possible someone can reply to me please. It seemed to pierce the atmosphere, travel through it burning brightly and leave on the opposite side of our planets atmosphere and fast. It got a little brighter maybe at the end but certainly appeared to leave as if carrying on through space. It must have been large as it didn’t burn up and was so much brighter but larger than any shooting stars I have seen and I have spent my life periodically checking out the sky when dark. I would very much appreciate a line or two. Tim Nixon
