Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was event 6241-2021. It went right over me. Thank goodness it landed in the wilderness because the main object was about a centimeter long from my perspective and it was no more than 10kms from me and no less than 6kms based on where it went behind the mountains.

RemarksI was standing on the second floor balcony of a two story structure facing south when the sky lit up bright enough for me to see the entire scenery in front of me. This is significant because even a full moon isn't bright enough to illuminate the area like this flash did. A second or two later a bright object came into my visual range from directly behind me just over my right shoulder. It was followed by 4 or 5 smaller objects and a trail of fire and smoke and continued south and disappeared behind the mountains between Mt. White Pyramid and Mt Epaulet about 7 kms from my position. The sky returned to its normal night state a second or two after the last object disappeared behind the mountains.
