Reports Report 5355h (Event 5355-2018)

Name Martin E
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It looked almost like a singular firework star, which I assumed it was at first, but then I realized the velocity was much too fast to be a firework, and the trajectory too straight. It looked rather large, maybe half the size of the more widely reported cases, despite the absence of any sounds.

Remarks It was less of a flash and more of a ramp-up to a maximum magnitude. The streak began as white/yellow, intensified as it moved across, and as the magnitude neared maximum before going out, I could see tinges of green outlining the white center.
