Reports Report 4255d (Event 4255-2017)

Name Lindsey D
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks My first thought was that something had been shot out of a plane, aka missile, but then it didn’t fall to earth and there was no explosion on the ground. It was jarring. We were in the middle of a conversation and it caught both of our attention. It was brief. Only 1-2 seconds in total length. I’ve NEVER seen anything like this
