This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3799-2019
Observer
NameStephen P and Lynn G
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was vary clear as we ( we both saw it ) were looking in the same direction. I've never seen one this close to the center of my field of vision. The intensity was like looking at someone arc welding about a mile away in daylight. It was blue turning green with a white corona vary tight, about 4x bigger than the ISS, with a thin and persistent train. At first we thought it was a fire work but it came from over head and our backs were to the ocean and it had no ballistic arc from our angle of observation. It even seemed to dim a bit about half way through then brighten before fading away.
