Observer
NameRobbier S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe object fell almost vertically and went out before it would have gone behind any trees or buildings. I can’t think of any way to explain it. It was about the size of a baseball, but I couldn’t tell if it was closer and smaller or large but far away.
