Observer
NameJude B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was travelling like a ballistic missle the speed. I was driving at the time, it was going very fast. Seemed to be falling quickly. From ormskirk heading to southport in a North North West direction. Brilliant white head and glowing tail. Beautiful and surreal at same time. Never seen anything like it before. Definitely NOT a shooting star, too big and too long a tail.
