Observer Name John S Experience Level 1/5 Remarks When it first caught my eye, thought it was an aircraft. The light was white. Was moving kind of slow. Watched as it went from my right to left dripping fragments. Didn't notice fragments until it was straight out from me. Looked pretty close. Then it disappeared.
