This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1981-2019
Observer
NameAndrew C
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe object slowly grew brighter then slowly faded. It didn't move that much, slightly drifting lower in altitude as it faded but staying more or less stationary. It appears to me to have been a meteor traveling head on to my line of sight. As it faded, I could see the object faintly so it didn't burn up completely. Possible meteorite.
