This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3384-2014
Observer
NameJohn F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving north on the Garden State Parkway entering at exit 109 and at about exit 114 in the far distance north I saw a wide streak of light which appeared to be an object entering and disintegrating through the Earth's atmosphere. Lasted just a few seconds but was amazed by the width. Saw a similar streak a few months back when having a catch with my son but much smaller - maybe distance a factor.
