Reports Report 5355u (Event 5355-2018)

Name Jennie O
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was driving South and just out my front window I noticed the flash and then after about 2 seconds the fragmentation. It did not seem very big but was a very yellow color. I thought it was like fireworks but it occurred over a non-populated area.
