Reports Report 2329b (Event 2329-2017)

Name Donald H
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks I saw it through the trees, very bright. It looked more like flaming debris dropping from the sky. Within 3 seconds the sound of a large jet could be heard but not seen. This obscured any sound the falling object may have been emitting.
