Observer
NameJohn S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksAmazing, saw it while driving home from work. Never seen anything like it. Happened quick, freaked me out. Extremely bright white with a "burning/trailing" appearance as opposed to a solid orb. Looked like it was coming straight down from when it first appeared in my windshield field of view. Looked close, probably an illusion. Wow!!!
