Name Kristie O
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It's beauty and surprise appearance nearly took my breath away. I was driving and it dropped into view diagonally out of the right side windshield as I was on I-95N just approaching the Old Lyme, CT exits. It appeared rather close and large...bowling ball size at a distance. It lasted only seconds...spectacular!
