Observer
NameGarrett S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was in my car leaving a parking lot. My Wife and 4 yr. old Son also saw it. My Son and I were absolutely Amazed by what we saw. I am still in awe. Have never seen anything like this so close. To me it felt like and looked like it was only 1,000 feet up but I assume it was likely quite a bit higher. After about 6 seconds it completely disappeared but sky line was still visible so it was like someone just turned it off!
