Observer
NameMat R
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI couldn't pinpoint my precise location on your first map as no icon was there to be dragged, so please note that my location was 52.188N 2.218W. Postcode of nearest address was WR1 2AH. I was driving south-west on "A38 City Walls Road" in Worcester, approaching the juction with "A44 Sidbury", and saw the object pass from left to right above the buildings on opposite side of the road junction. When I last saw the object is was visually 'below' the moon which was in the western sky. I checked the moon's position in the sky afterwards which is how I estimated the altitude/azimuth of the object when I saw it. Sky was brightening so difficult to estimate magnitude. It had a proper thickness to it, with a rounded 'front' end and a narrowing 'tail' behind as it passed across view. Very fiery orange colour.
