Observer
NameErin S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy 12 year old son and I witnessed this together. My son claims he heard fizzling sound. He also said he initially thought it was a plane crashing. I could understand why he thought this it was very large, it was very low and getting lower, and it lasted for a decent amount of time. There was a clear view of it directly in front of us while we were sitting at a stop sign. We sat and watched in amazement.
