Reports Report 16c (Event 16-2019)

Name Amy H
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I live in a dark suburban area and saw this from my backyard while I was letting my dog outside. It only lasted for a few seconds and caught by eye because it was so bright. It only last for about 2-3 seconds and then disappeared. It was light blue and was aiming towards the ground. My fiancé and I assumed it was a shooting star, but it was much bigger, brighter, and a different color than what we often see in from our backyard.
