Reports Report 3837ap (Event 3837-2017)

Name Bob E
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks It looked wing shaped and silver ish when I first saw it. My first thought was the meteors caught on tape in Russia a few years ago.I was suprised when it ended so fast Clear beautiful daytime sighting, looked different than the meteors I have seen More like smoke around the leading edge than light, Less tail but all my experience is with nighttime meteor observation This was so cool, I hope others report...
