Reports Report 1407t (Event 1407-2017)

Name J H
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was riding my motorcycle at the time with full face helmet. The visor of my helmet is tinted and I wear polarized sunglasses under my helmet, both items negatively impact my ability to accurately describe the magnitude and color of what I saw... Additionally, due to being on my motorcycle all I can accurately say is that the bright object I saw appeared left of center from my direction of travel.
