NameJeff N
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was driving east on route 106 in bridgewater towards east bridgewater. I saw the flash streaking downward to the left of the moon. It wasn’t up like a firework definitely downward towards the horizon. Bright white. As bright or brighter than moon. There was no trailing upwards like a flare. It was all a downward motion for 2-5 seconds.
