Reports Report 638ft (Event 638-2015)

Name Raymond R
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks The object I saw was moving so slow from east to west that I first thought it was an airplane, but immediately realize that if it was then it was on fire. Since it was still dark out and no traffic I stopped my vehicle to watch it until I could no longer see it. It seemed like a really long time and was moving so slow and so low to the ground that by the time it faded out it looked as though it was going to crash into the foothills somewhere between Iris and North Boulder. When I arrived at work five minutes later I told my fellow co-workers that I just saw a meteor and ask if any of them had seen it. They had already entered the building and did not. It was amazing to witness what I did but it was not the first time. I saw one in the late 90's pass over NCAR that was much brighter and moved a lot faster.
