Reports Report 5376b (Event 5376-2018)

Name William P
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This was a very small object, but was exceptionally close to the ground. It passed very near ca. 20m tall building and using this as a ruler, it was certainly no more than 30m total above the ground. I initially thought it was a firework, but (i) they are illegal in Switzerland this time of year and (ii) there is no building from which it could have been fired to match the trajectory and angle of flight.
