Reports Report 31gf (Event 31-2019)

Name Leila M
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This fiery ball with a small tail was very bright and appeared to be traveling left to right (east to west) in my line of sight. I watched it descend for at least 4 seconds or more. I looked for an explosion but saw none obscured by trees. I was driving so I couldn't take a picture.
