This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2204-2019
Observer
NameNag J
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe trajectory was unusually straight down... but no boom was heard. I ended up checking sky for any signs of debris from crash of plane or something. I saw it close to horizon - it was visible for 2-3 seconds, felt like longer due to the intensity of display that was more vivid and faster than fireworks or flights.
