Reports Report 3490d (Event 3490-2015)

Name Fred D
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks This was big. I think I actually saw the shape of the object. It looked like it entered the outer atmosphere and traveled 1/2 the sky, then went back out of the atmosphere. The color was like a heated piece of iron. A dull red. Very interesting. If it came back, it looked big enough to cause a problem.
