This report has been linked to the following event: Event 929-2010
Observer
NameJohn
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI immediately noted the time this happened because I was sitting in a parking lot in my car. I got out right away to listen for a sound, but my car was idling and I heard nothing. I was looking right over BWI airport and am used to seeing jets take off at night. It caught my eye because it was much brighter than a jet\'s takeoff light. It was definitely heading westwards. Hope this helps.
