Reports Report 5361eh (Event 5361-2017)

Name Alan H
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks This looked like it was going to land in the Pacific Ocean. It burned up (I’m assuming that’s what happened) what looked to be a 1/2 mile or so above the earth. I was with 2 other people whom also witnessed this. This was incredible to see.
