Observer
NameJeffrey S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was driving Westbound on Route 280 in New Jersey and saw this VERY fast light shoot across the sky and knew right away that it wasn't a plane because it was going too fast. I just assumed it was a meteor after I saw it crumble and disappear at the end of it.
