He also claimed that he saw "multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory", but concluded that those could have been meteorites.

"There's nothing showing on either primary or secondary [radar]", air traffic control said, according to the report.

The pilot said they saw "a bright light" that "disappeared at very high speed".

"Glad it wasn't just me", someone chimed in at one point.
