Observer
NameRalph M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksWas outside looking south when there was a light flash. I was confused, because it seemed like car lights, but then I realized it was coming from overhead. By the time I looked up it was gone and all I could see was the glowing trail. It was heading east to west, and my house blocked its path, so I never saw the ball itself. I went around the house to see if I could catch it but it was already gone. It actually lit up the night around me as it passed.
