Observer
NamePatrick A
Experience Level3/5
RemarksAt approximatly 10:25pm we were heading southbound on interstate I95 at about the Boyton beach exit in Florida when this object appeared ahead of us. It seemed to be in a steep decent and moving from West to East. Based on its angle and trajectory, it looked like it was headed towards the ocean. I have seen many falling stars and meteors in the past and they are usually very small, fast and last a second or two. This object was much bigger, much slower and lasted at least 10 seconds. It kind of looked like a crashing plane except that the whole front part was a greenish yellow and it had a very controlled jet fighter type flame exhaust coming out the rear.
