Observer
NameSarah W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI saw this out of the corner of my eye as I was traveling in the passenger side of the car to work. It was astonishing. I have never seen anything like it before with my own eyes. It was very bright white sort of swirling light and finished with a small orange light. I may not have seen it from start to finish. I was traveling west in my car and looking north when it occurred. I hope this information helps.
