This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1382-2021
Observer
NameBill R
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was driving North bound a couple miles before the Bradley Intnl Airport exit, and it appeared to be heading NE and disappeared over the horizon as the highway dipped into a slight valley. It looked like it would've come down shortly possibly in CT or MA as it did not appear to be too high in the sky but it happened so fast it was probably much higher than it appeared. There was a large plane approaching Bradley airport a minute later from the East as we came up out of the valley area, so there may have been a report to the airport as well. All and all it was cool to see it !!
