Observer
NameSteven J
Experience Level4/5
RemarksBrief yet remarkably vivid to have lighted up landscape though patchy low rainclouds. Started obscured by low cloud and ended same but passed across a patch of clear sky in transit and was crystal clear in that moment. Lasted long enough for me to lift my head to look up and then see the arc as if moved northward/downward. Maybe a re-entering satellite?
