This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3942-2021
Observer
NameDavid W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis must have been a larger object than an ordinary meteor. It appeared to enter the atmosphere at a shallowish angle from a southerly direction and was on an entirely different course to the space station (which appeared to have 2 other objects, maybe the Russian module and launch vehicle, I don't know for sure, associated with it). The space station passed directly over our location about 15 minutes later. Hope this helps.
