Observer
NameMichael S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt appeared as a round brilliant white sphere for a couple of seconds travelling right to left in my vision. I was standing on the deck at the back of my property at 4.25am having a cigarette when it appeared. I often see satellites during the night from my deck but this was much much bigger and lower in the sky. Also I have seen numerous small shooting stars from my deck but they were mostly travelling in the opposite direction.
