Reports Report 3712f (Event 3712-2017)

Name Paula P
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was driving to work, the sun was just coming up behind me (I was going west) the time was approximately 7:08 am. It came out of the southern sky to my left, travelled right across in front of me over my car to the north over the tops of the trees, so I never saw where it landed, as I was going down into the dip of a hill at the time. I pulled over after cresting the hill but saw nothing. It was bright white with a long silvery bluish tail with some firey orange! Feel very fortunate to have witnessed this, it was an absolutely beautiful phenomenon!
