Reports Report 2611ac (Event 2611-2018)

Name Catherine P
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This came from east to west over our house and it came into view as a bright green ball then flamed out. Two of us saw it. I heard it first which caused me to look up as it came into view. It did seem to have a sparkly tail all of this lasted a very short period of time. It almost looked like it was going to hit a house it seemed to be that low but of course it was not. At first I thought maybe it was a firework of some sort but all was quiet and we live in an over 55 community. It was beautiful to see, even that brief period of time.
