Reports Report 4069a (Event 4069-2017)

Name Jeremy D
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It, seemingly, came out of nowhere. There was not a long gradual path/trajectory - it was a sudden spark/flash of electric green and continued sparking and streaking across and down the skyline until it disappeared behind the treeline along the I-75 Highway. There were other, seemingly normal, aircraft flying around as well in the sky at the same time & in the general vicinity.
