Observer
NamePhyllis J
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was a huge fluorescent green ball, larger than a helicopter, with a big fiery jagged golden yellow tail, we were travelling up the A1 from the south nearing Peterborough and we saw it coming from the right and watched it cross directly in front of us, it came down at quite a sharp angle and thought it must have crashed into a nearby field - it was travelling too fast for an aircraft but we were able to get a really good clear look at it, possibly for about 10 seconds - it was awesome!!
