Experience Level3/5
RemarksSeveral instances like this have occurred in this area. A notable one being a bolide that streaked over Cuba during the daytime. This was observed by chance when I was star gazing outside in my yard and it appeared about as bright as Iridium flares used to be. Due to how quickly it happened, no video or photographic evidence was taken.
