This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2443-2021
Observer
NameGreg I
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was struck by how low the object appeared to be, and I felt as though I could make out flame interacting with the atmosphere. My son flies drones, and this object appeared to be half the size of a standard DJI drone. I listened two minutes for a terminal explosion but did not detect one. I was left with a feeling of primitive awe. I am 61 and have never seen anything like this before.
