Reports Report 5538acj (Event 5538-2017)

Name Jonathan S
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was unable to hear any noise associated with the object as I was in my car driving. The initial brightness in the sky as the object appeared, seemingly from behind cloud cover, was enough to catch my attention whilst driving. I was not directly under it but I had to duck down in order to see it looking up through the car windscreen. I have never seen anything travelling as fast, the green glow was oval (may have been speed distortion) and intense in colour.
