Reports Report 3839f (Event 3839-2017)

Name Don D
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks It seemed so low that I thought it would crash and I might hear an explosion, but it may gave gone 50 - 200 miles of even further. It’s angle was already very shallow. It happened so quickly and was moving so fast that it must have been close, relatively speaking. It was moving much faster than any jet, helicopter, space station, weather balloon or meteor than I’ve ever seen and with zero noise. I wish I had it on video! It literally looked like a giant burning fireball.
