This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4827-2017
Observer
Name Angelo D
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was the most amazing, impressive thing I have ever witnessed. I was traveling 57 WEST towards Agawam/Suffield and it just appeared suddenly moving extremely fast. It looked gigantic. It was very illuminated with green and firelike very hot looking colors. This experience only lasted 2 maybe 3 seconds tops. The explosion was magnificent and right there but there were no remnants of colors it was just gone. I had my radio in the car on medium volume level so I didn't hear anything. I was glad to have my mother in law in the passenger seat whom also witnessed this with me. I am very intrigued by the experience.
