Reports Report 3345cc (Event 3345-2017)

Name Katrina L
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was driving on a dark country road. The center "ball" was very bright and white/yellow with bright blue faded to green around it. The tail was a darker yellow, fading to orange. It was huge- bigger than any shooting star, or up close firework. And it was quick. It disappeared in about 3 seconds. It's path was almost vertical, but slightly going down to the left.
