Reports Report 638de (Event 638-2015)

Name Tammy N
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Got a great view of it as I watched it through the passenger window of car and followed it across the windshield and last saw it as it through the driver's side window and lost it as it went behind the mountains. The sky was dark with no light pollution at an altitude of approx. 10,000 feet. It appeared as a fairly large fiery ball (in relation to an airplane that was also seen in the sky) which, seemed like it was burning out as it went behind the mountains.
