Observer
Namecraig U
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe size was large. I have 10 years of sailing a small yacht in the South Pacific, sailed from West Coast USA to Asia. My viewing of the night sky is extensive although other than navigation, I am not fluent in astronomical terms. I have seen large meteors at night sailing, especially north of New Zealand. Given size and color my best guess is that this was space junk
