Observer
NameNick V
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was walking my dogs when I saw this and didn't have a way to tell the time. 8:40PM was my best estimate. I specifically recall seeing this kind of pop out of nowhere in the sky. It started faint and increased in intensity until it burned out. It was long enough in duration and trajectory that I had to turn my head to watch the entire flight path.
