Reports Report 232e (Event 232-2017)

Name Schafer T
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was driving south and happened to be looking south east just inside towards the ede of the left windshield. The sun had just set but west horizon was still redish pink south east was a darker blue, it was traveling slightly from up right to down left, but not much more than an inch side to side difference. It started out like a golf ball sized glow bluish green and as it came close to the horizon flashed not quite as big as my fist and disappeared before getting to the horizon. Maybe one and quarter seconds tops, like a snap of a fingers. Its possible it may have been visible longer, but I didnt see it because a trucks windshield has only so much angle. My time might be a few minutes off as well.
