Observer
NameMichael E
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI saw it fall almost straight down. I have never seen anything like it before. Was yellow/orange color and had a tail of fire on it as it fell until I couldn't see it due to buildings being in the way. We thought it was extremely close, like a plan or helicopter (military base next door)
