Observer
NameRobyn T
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was not in the shape of a ball, it looked flat and about the length of a car. It was on fire then the fire went out. I feel like I was w/in about 3 miles of it although it is so hard to judge distance. With it's trajectory, I feel like it landed west of 48th ave and possibly somewhere near the Grand River to the south of where I was. I continued south to see if I could see any fires breaking out or any evidence and saw none.
