Observer
NameMichelle Q
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt happened so fast. We (my husband and me) were in our car about to pull into the drive way. It came from straight overhead and fell right in front of us. The windows were up and the radio was on, so I don't know if there was a sound but we didn't see anything. I didn't notice any smoke and I'm not sure if there was a burst at the end. It was very bright and large. At first we thought it could have been a firework, but we didn't hear anything. I've never seen anything like this.
