Reports Report 402h (Event 402-2015)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 402-2015
Observer
NameErnie F
Experience Level3/5
RemarksInitially I thought it was a landing light (halogen color), then realized the descent angle, speed and trajectory were not normal for an airplane. Then realized it may be a meteor. It seemed to disappear/darken as it approached the horizon, almost like a satellite when it goes into the earth's shadow. But this object was very fast. Crossed the sky in less than 10 seconds.
