Reports Report 501aq (Event 501-2018)

Name Eric W
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I first noticed the object with a halo or white fuzziness. There was no tail and it was moving at about the speed of a satellite. The halo turned into a "V" at the end and then everything disappeared. I am approximating everything from memory (3 days ago.) The angles (direction and above the horizon) are approximate. The whole event lasted at least 5 minutes.
