Reports Report 451w (Event 451-2015)

Name Andrew H
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It looked to me like a fireball. It moved slowly (relatively) across the night sky over the Salt Lake Valley, and disappeared near the horizon going from the South to approximately due North. I assure it was not an aircraft, as I observed an aircraft flying next to the fireball for the first 2 seconds of it's duration.
