Reports Report 638bf (Event 638-2015)

Name Don C
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Object traveled from east to west. At first thought is was an aircraft. Constant brightness moving at constant speed, but slight glow on front end. Then for no more than 5 seconds flared and left trail with 'sparks'. After that it returned more or less to its original brightness and continued travelling to the west and similar speed as before. Lost sight of it over houses and trees. Made for a more interesting drive into work
