This report has been linked to the following event: Event 7116-2021
Observer
NameLars F
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was driving south on Hwy 169 with my family and the object was bright enough and moving so fast (seemingly towards the ground) that it instantly grabbed our attention. It was unlike anything we've seen before and although I realize perceptual distortions are common among this type of observation, our reaction was that it must've been a meteor falling to the earth.
