Observer
NameMelissa F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was rectangular in shape. I was in a car. That would effect my ability to hear sound. At first I could not make sense of the night light come from the direction. Was it a plane? Am I witnessing a crash? But the speed was significant and I realized it was a meteor in the atmosphere burning up. I noticed the shape was rectangular, brighter towards the back and it was gone. All burned up. Quite Fascinating.
