This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2841-2019
Observer
NameWilliam C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was the second largest object I have ever seen fall from the sky. It seemed to be in three parts, like the body and wings of an airplane, but unlike the wings of an airplane, the two smaller outer parts of the object were parallel to the larger part in the middle, not perpendicular, and seemed to be falling just slightly ahead of the larger center piece. I wondered if it were space debris.
