Reports Report 3837hb (Event 3837-2017)

Name Patricia K
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks The head was white with a white and slightly orange/red glow following and a very bright green end of the tail. When the glowing stream of colors extinguished I could see a brown puff or object remaining for a nano second then it disappeared directly above the water but I did NOT see the brown remains fall into the water. Just disappeared. There were boats on horizon and the meteor object definitely looked to be between the boats and shore...I'd estimate a few miles at most. From my view I assumed any remains would be landing in the water if there were any. Another person on the beach later confirmed he also saw what he thought was a meteor.
