This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2545-2022
Observer
NameKatherine L
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWhen I first became aware of it, I was walking in the opposite direction and thought there were headlights behind me, so I turned and saw only the last few seconds of a ball of orange fire going down. I thought maybe I imagined it but confirmed the sight with 7 other people who were in the surrounding field and road at the time. Because I only caught the tail end, it was impossible for me to say it's trajectory. My time stamp is an approximation, it was somewhere between 9 pm and 11 30 pm but I'm pretty sure it was around 10-10:30. The only data I'm confident in is the Color, the point on the horizon I LAST saw it, the date, and that it didn't have any of the sound, fracturing, or other interesting things toward the end of this report. Coolest thing I ever saw in my life.
