Observer
NameMatthew N
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt traveled incredibly fast across the sky and reminded me of a firework with a bright green central light with white sparks coming off of it. It lasted 2-3 seconds and the light looked like it expired as it passed over the Diablo Mountain Range just north of Mt. Hamilton. It had a very flat trajectory.
