This report has been linked to the following event: Event 638-2015
Observer
NameRobert C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksAs soon as I saw it I thought meteor. It was travelling from the ENE to the WSW and an approximate angle of 245 degrees if North is O and West is 270. In the paper people noted it looked green. To me it looked yellow. It vanished behind houses and trees before the event was over, and I'm not sure how much before I noticed it had occurred, so I likely saw neither the start nor the finish of the event, but about 5 - 6 seconds in the middle of its trajectory. It looked and acted like the event that occurred in the Teton area and was caught on film way back in 1972, but the sky was dark.
