This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3798-2015
Observer
NameRodney K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis looked like more then just a meteor because of the sparkler type thing at the end. As soon as it was over I saw a slow red light flying totally opposite direction (this however was highly likely just an airplane that happened to be in the general area and its flight was solid to the left and I watched it as long as I could and nothing out of the ordinary).
