Reports Report 5450if (Event 5450-2017)

Name Matthew D
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I was surprised that it was so yellow. It was close to the color of a wood fire. I was on the road at the address noted. The placement of the google character indicates where it first appeared. It seemed to 'pop' into the sky, as opposed to streaming into my field of vision. It moved fast relative to a plane, for example, but slowly relative to a traditional, shooting star. Very unique. More burning fireball than streak of light. Hope this helps.
