Reports Report 4451c (Event 4451-2017)

Name Kyle H
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks A bright white light caught mine as well as my girlfriends attention while we were driving home around 1am. We looked directly up and as we did we saw a whitish-green trail zooming across the sky. It was a thick trail, much thicker than any shooting star or plane contrails I've ever seen. It also seemed to be much lower in the sky than any plane would fly, and it certainly didn't seem to be outside of the atmostphere. Before we could even say anything to each other it was out of sight. It didn't go out of our field of view, it just seemed to no longer be where it had just been going.
