Reports Report 4500cx (Event 4500-2017)

Name Debra B
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks Because of the closeness to Camp Pendleton, I'm curious to know if this was a meteor I saw, or something related to the marine base. It did not look like a flare - e.g. the whole sky did not light up. It was a bright streak in an otherwise dark sky.

Remarks There was a long thin trail with a fragmented larger ball at the right end of the trail. It moved left to right across my visual field, and arced down slightly as it disappeared over the ocean. The ball looked like a burning fireball (e.g. there was flickering movement within the ball).
