Observer
NameDavid V
Experience Level2/5
RemarksLocation was on east side of US 160. 8 miles SW of Tonalea (57 miles SW of Kayenta) at 6:54 PM Arizona Standard Time. Very brief, streaking down from sky and burned out before impacting earth's surface. This is very remote Navajo desert land, not near any houses, no evidence of anyone around to indicate this was a falling projectile or firework. My daughter and I were driving and both saw the same thing.
