Reports Report 4969a (Event 4969-2017)

Name Elial C
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks I imagine it was a pretty shallow trajectory. Both my wife and i saw it. We werent expecting it as we were driving but anticipating the upcoming shower. Maximum intensity was about 2/3rds after it became visible. We sae it about half a second before maximum intensity. The length of time it was observed was about 1 and a half seconds. Lost sight after it finished terminal phase and cooled to dull red. I estimate its time of flight after becoming visibale was probably 2 and a half seconds prior to losing sight.
