Reports Report 4894bt (Event 4894-2017)

Name Teresa H
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks i was driving it was bright enough to catch out of corner of my eye for me to turn and watch it swirl like a firecracker that got stuck in a spin before it expired. I have not seen one do that and it was exciting. if i had anyway to know exactly where if anything could have landed iwould be looking for it but the area over which i observed it is a heavily wooded area.
