This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3429-2022
Observer
NameSean M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was a much larger and brighter light than any star or planet. I only saw the object for about a second or two, just as it passed behind some trees. I live near an airport so I almost wrote this off as a plane, but it was a bright, constant white light rather than any kind of colored flashing aircraft lights. It was also much brighter than any shooting star I've seen. I have truly never seen anything like this before. I watched for about a minute afterwards and didn't see or hear anything else.
