Reports Report 3837fg (Event 3837-2017)

Name Patrick D
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was fishing at the ocean shore and saw this very quickly, way out over the ocean. I have seen some shooting stars straight up in the sky at night but never anything like this. It only lasted a second or two and was heading kind of from east to west, but at an angle.
