Observer
NameDarren R
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt did have a visible tail. I was driving at the time and it went out of my field of vision fairly quickly as I was driving in a direction that took it out of my field of view. It was the brightest and biggest I've seen in the daylight. I've seen one other in the daytime, but it was a quick flash and over. This was not like that. I believe if I could have kept it in my field of view I could have followed it for much longer.
