Observer
NameKenneth S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis object seemed to be a collection of objects stuck together very closely, each leaving their own trail, which blended into one trail as it passed. It was in the north west traveling south across my field of view, I was looking north west at the time and it was traveling south across my field of view for about three seconds, and traveled across about 50 degrees of arc almost horizontally, but falling slightly downward. I was totally silent, and no flash was observed at the end, it just faded out near the end of its path. It started out white, but as it traveled it went through shades of green and blue.
