NOAA Doppler sees streak across US.

While looking at NOAA's Doppler radar, national mosaic, base reflectivity loop, I noticed a streak crossing nearly the whole US continent. It appeared as what might look like a fireball streak, the length of Massachusetts, appearing to travel from Portland Maine, traversing south west direction in a random zig zag, but not deterring to far off it's course which ended it's travel of my screen out through Texas. The NOAA national mosaic updates one hourly I believe. My guesstimation is that it traveled the distance within 1 hour.

If NOAA keeps records of yesterdays event, NUFORC should investigate this. Others must have seen this too.


We doubt that the event was caused by a UFO, but we cannot be certain. The anomaly may have been caused by a "data drop," when the data was downloaded from a weather satellite. PD
