Observer
NameLynn C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was led on my bed and looking out of the window. A bright white "ball" with a "tail" came from nowhere over my house heading towards Blackpool. It was moving extremely fast and vanished in a few seconds. Thought it was a shooting star, but was bigger than that and I've never seen a shooting star over Preston.
