Reports Report 5227a (Event 5227-2017)

Name Rebecca K
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks It seemed like a very large fireball (if that is indeed what it was) and also appeared to be much closer than anything i have ever seen before. Matter of fact, i was expecting to hear a sound from it hitting something, but i did not hear anything loud aince i was inside. I had been doing work on my laptop and it caught my attention in the bay window directly in front of me. It was almost startling because it was so bright and so large. Please let me know if you have any questions. I believe the time was 2:32am, but it may have been just a little bit later than that around 2:37am.
