This report has been linked to the following event: Event 121-2020
Observer
NamePete D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis object appeared as a rapidly moving bright star or planet, brilliant white, with no tail or trail that we could observe through the car windshield. Its motion was very quick in a straight line appearing to us moving from right to left on an angle and what appeared to be a very high and flat trajectory. There was no fading or shedding of other lights during the 3 seconds it was in view. It was surprising to me how fast this object was moving, much much faster than other meteors I have observed in the past.
