Observer
NameJane P
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI didn't report it right away because I thought it was a shooting star, just bigger and more dramatic than others I had seen. When I heard that there had been sightings that same night (Jan. 29) about 10:30 p.m. PT, I wanted to report this. My sighting was definitely between about 7:35 and 7:41 p.m. PT while driving on the 14 Freeway--and I mentioned it to the person I was speaking with at the time on the cell phone (I checked my iPhone call log, which said that call was from 7:30 to 7:42 pm. So I definitely saw the object, but it was not at 10:30 pm. I entered the address of the sighting as closely as I recall, but because the 14 freeway has curves and I was driving at freeway speed, I could be slightly off on my exact location. But the angle at which I saw it is correct. Thank you.
