Observer
NameBill O
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe object had a strange angle, it looked almost like it fell from the sky, it came straight in almost at me it looked like, then I realized what it was, and realized that it was more of a 45 angle, just looked strange as it fragmented and flew across the sky, and was very bright and extremely brief. I was playing right field in a softball game, and had a very unique view behind some tree cover and neighborhood surrounding our field . It was very brief, but very brilliant in color. I really hope someone else saw something.
