Observer
NameRobert M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy wife and I sighted at the exact same time. Traveling west at about a 45 degree angle in the sky. Very surprised, looked at each other and said what the hell was that. Had to be a meteor or could it be space junk? First time we had ever seen anything like it. Both 73 years old and seen lots of shooting stars around the world and it looked like nothing we had ever seen. Pretty cool.
