This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2643-2021
Observer
NameAndrew C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt appeared in the night sky right above me. It was about 2 times as bright as Venus. At first I thought it might be the ISS but it was moving way to slow to be that or to be a meteorite. It traveled about a finger length before completely vanishing. The ISS normally stays visible across the entire sky and moves a lot faster. Meteorites also move a lot faster. I don’t know what it was but it was definitely not the ISS or a meteorite. 🛸
