This report has been linked to the following event: Event 7540-2021
Observer
NameLaurie B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksEven though I was looking through a lot of trees when I first noticed it, it was clearly not something that should be in the sky at night. I saw it fall and then the end of the trail, where it flashed and was gone. The flash was close to the tree line, but I live on a river, so once it dropped below the branches I was looking through, I had an unobstructed view of the flash.
