Reports Report 5538uw (Event 5538-2017)

Name D G
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It really felt as if it landed in one of the fields on the west side of the A1 close to where I indicated as we were driving along and the last view was out of the passenger side window low down. To the point I thought we could have caught it. However, it seems to be a meteor so most likely wrong. Good luck in what you find
