Reports Report 4704g (Event 4704-2018)

Name Jeremy Alan L
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks Driving in the direction of the phenomena (directly ahead) when witnessed. Both of my children also witnessed it. It almost looked like a greenish firework that shot up and back down again. At initial glance, I thought it was a firework. Very unusual and extremely rare angle to view a meteor.
