This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4846-2019
Observer
NameJAMES S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was driving on the highway approaching White Post, VA with no oncoming traffic. My view was thru my windshield and probably encompassed the middle portion of the windshield from beginning to end of the event. It did seem to me that there was a "pulse" in the middle of the path, i.e. a brightening, b4 the fireball continued. The path itself was continuous. The event ended above the horizon with no additional or final pulse. It simply ended. I would rate my experience between #3 and #4.
