This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1414-2019
Observer
NameCurtis H
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving west into work and the sky was particularly clear. I was about to get off my exit when I witnessed a bright, white spherical object moving from east to west faster than any plane, satellite, or shooting star I have ever seen, except MUCH closer. First instinct was shooting star, but then it appeared to be within earth’s atmosphere. Cannot be certain there was a trail or if it was my imagination, but no smoke trail for sure. Lasted roughly 2-3 seconds. Second thought was UFO. Third successive thought was if there was an expected low flying meteor pass at this time, or if anyone else had seen the same in the area. Please reach out if any more info is available. Thanks.
