Reports Report 6425oc (Event 6425-2020)

Name Alexandra C
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks When I was driving home I had to pull over because I didn’t know if I was seeing things. It was so low at one point that I could see it looked like a ball of fire. When I first noticed it I though a plane was flying low because it was so bright. The direction it was falling in, and where I was in the road, there is a large area of trees that I lost sight of it but, at that point, it was really bright and low. It was so big and bright I was waiting for a “boom.”
