Observer
NameLaRae P
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving around on a back country road just to get some fresh air. Beautiful night & I just turned down this unknown road.. had been watching the sunset and was exploring. I saw a bright orange blazing streak of ball-ish fire with yellow sparkles for a second or less, as I drove through a wooded part of the road, right after I glanced up to the right and out my passenger window and saw the falling ball of fire. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I named the road as Clay Gregory in Orlinda, TN, but I do not know exactly which portion of the road I was on at that second. I believe I was headed north at the time. The farm road became densely wooded to my right, exactly after I witnessed this thing I’ve never seen before! Pattern mimicked shooting stars I’ve seen throughout my lifetime, but the size and color was unlike anything I’ve ever seen!! So amazing.
