Reports Report 1337gv (Event 1337-2017)

Name Kathleen L
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks The time is approximate and so are the angles I reported. I always look at the constellations when I take my dog out at night. I was looking up and saw the object moving left to right in a downward arc - it was very bright. I lost sight of it when it went below the tree line in my field of vision. It was moving very very fast! I did not know what I saw and looked on-line to see if there were reports of a shooting star and found this site. I hope this report helps your research. Also just an FYI there were military jets flying at about the same time I saw the object. I think they were out of the Marine base at Parris Island. This object moved too fast though to be a jet.
