Observer
NameLaura M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was mowing the grass so can't report about sound. The trail it left was probably due to its extreme brightness--like seeing a blue dot after a flash photo is taken. It was Very bright--I thought it was an enormous bottle rocket firecracker for the first instant but we have no close neighbors who would shoot one of those. What I saw was intense bright white, sort of ringed with blue and it streaked through the sky from above me to the south and it seemed to fall lower and turn greenish-blue. Then it disappeared. It was big, too, bigger than a low-flying commercial airliner.
