Observer
NameMegan W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving on the interstate and am unsure of the exact time and location. It was between 630 and 7pm. Before the shallowford exit, but after the Decatur exits. I was headed down 153 towards 75 south. It was on my left side. It was a bright streak with an explosion at the end. Quite fast. Perhaps someone just shot something into the sky, but it was certainly irregular. I didn't quite see where is started from. There weren't many stars out. But the moon and three or so of the brighter stars in the sky were clearly visible. Whatever i saw was equally bright.
