RemarksMy friend and I were driving up the A3 at 7.10, as we drove under the bridge approaching the slip road for the Higgs Back, a very fast, seems like a pulsating ball of fire, flew past us from left to right. It quickly went out of sight. It looked very close, nearly like it was a few hundred meters away. It was very bright, bright yellow, with a little bit coming off the back as it went out of sight.
