Reports Report 4827s (Event 4827-2017)

Name Andrew B
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I saw the object just as I was stepping outside. The sky was very clear. It passed about 10° below the nearly full moon from north to south at roughly the trajectory shown in the previous answers. The moon itself was very bright, but this object was at least as bright or probably a bit brighter than the moon itself (the termination was very bright like a camera flash). I stared at the sky for a few more minutes to look for any others, but nothing else appeared.
