Observer
NameDoug S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI saw it as clear as day. I got done with working and went to go get food. As I was coming back home, I was walking down my driveway and saw something much brighter than a plane, but not huge. It traveled down and to the left a bit for mabye 2 seconds before it fizzled away. It looked far away, but I could tell it was MUCH faster than an aircraft. I stood in the same spot I saw it, with a box of pizza in my hand, and took a photo of where I was looking and even got a screen shot from a star gazing app, to show my location / direction I was looking.
