This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3465-2015
Observer
NameMichael K
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI saw the meteor pass across my window while in bed and first thought my mind was just playing tricks on me with the reflection of car headlights, because it was too large and too bright to be a plane, unless the aircraft was flying very low to the ground. It almost looked like a firework or a missile because it was giving off sparks, but there was absolutely no sound. It wasn't until a nearby friend texted me a minute later, without knowing what I had seen, saying "I think I just saw a UFO crash" that I realized it wasn't a reflection. She claims to have seen it fly all the way across the sky and then heard a "pop" when the light hit the horizon, but I heard nothing from where I was.
