Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was actually in my car parked along the road when I observed it. The night was crystal clear and the moon was rising. Around the moon was a yellowish hue and the sky was still turning dark, meaning it was a very dark, sharp blue color not black with no clouds or mist at all. I was looking directly out of my drivers window, which was down. I saw a very bright white object that was curved at the front with very vivid spike shapes protruding out the back with red tips and a long vivid white tail jutting out the back. It lasted at least 3 seconds and it was actually so clear and vivid that it took my breath away. It came from the east heading west. I could see the shape of it perfectly. It made no sound at all and I saw no prior or post flashes or smoke. It was beautiful.
