Observer
NameDan D
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was much slower and brighter than typical “shooting stars” and satellites that I see at night. It moved in almost a parallel line across the sky. The sun had set but the sky was still light. I could see the bright light as it appeared and disappeared multiple times due to the light cloud cover. It lust seemed to burn out at the end. It did not come in a downward trajectory but horizontally across the sky.
