Reports Report 31dj (Event 31-2019)

Name Sheila R
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I was driving to work and was between King George fire department and the traffic light at Rt 3 & 206 when I seen it. The object appeared larger than what I am use to seeing - i.e. if I held a dime up at the windshield to compare it's distance size to an object, I would say it was the size of a dime. The object was brighter than a full moon - appeared bright white. The object disappeared behind the tree line behind the Sheetz at that intersection. I had the windows up and the radio on so I did not hear a boom. I did watch for an impact flash and did not see any.
