Observer
NameLisa S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was driving and out of the front of the windshield appeared a bright ball to my right side of the windshield and it continued to the horizon south west of me until I could not see it anymore. It was fast. At first I thought it was a shooting star until it dawned on me that that thing was huge. I was driving south on 29 heading from Lynchburg to Chatham where I live. It was like nothing I have ever seen Kinda of scary to see a brighht ball that big go over you and disappear in the horizon. I would love for you to contact me and tell me if anyone else saw it and what it actually was.
