Observer
NameJoan S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis lasted approximately 3 seconds traveling from the north to south as I looked west. It burned out before my eyes. Like a light shutting off. Creamcicle orange in colour. In my area of vision it look like it was half way between the tree tops & space & about 5' long & 2 ' high. What made me take notice was the sound first. I'd just got home from work At approx 2.44.am & walked around to my passenger door & heard a whirling sound like vehicle tires on pavement at a fast speed then I heard a bang. I thought a transport truck going down the hyway 1/4 of a mile from my house, had hit a car. I looked up in that direction to see what i have described. I couldnt believe what I witnessed. Really a once in a life time experience. I don't think anyone believed me when I told them. Thank you! JS
