This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4678-2021
Observer
NameLori L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was sitting on our deck at the time of the experience. I only saw it for a short amount of time because it was blocked by a tree and the garage - but I saw it between those two obstacles. I couldn't stand up fast enough and get down the steps and around to the front of our house to see any more of it. It was very bright, and both the fireball and vapor trail were defined. It seemed close, although I know it was not.
