Observer
NameKimberly A
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was laying on a towel looking up at the sky. This object was very bright and quite a bit wider than the average shooting star. It also moved very fast. It disappeared very quickly, so it didn't seem like there was much of a tail. the back end was slightly pointed and the front end was much more rounded. I actually thought I saw something in the sky about 30 minutes earlier (much skinnier and longer)- while I was driving to my house. I was not sure about that sighting, it very well could have been a glare on my windshield, but this one (while I was laying down looking up) was very clear. It was a bright sunny day.
