This report has been linked to the following event: Event 7527-2021
Observer
NameDaniel E
Experience Level5/5
RemarksI first saw a bright light/flash just above where I was looking. Because I wasn’t looking right at it, I should say that the “flash” may just have been a sudden appearance of light. I looked up to about 25 degrees from the horizon and saw a vertical teardrop shape descend, made of white light. The head stopped just above the horizon, and the teardrop shape disintegrated with a “burning out sparkler” effect from tail to head. Three seconds at most, and no sound.
