Reports Report 381n (Event 381-2015)

Observer
Name Eileen G
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I had just come out of the basement when, suddenly, the whole area was lit up bright blue/white as if a spotlight was on the area. When I looked up that is when I saw the ball travelling away from me. I lost the object in the trees, (our house is in a valley) but it was directly overhead.
