Please note:

This information is based on an unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) sighting as reported to the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). A UAS can be a personal drone (e.g. a quadcopter), or a larger military drone.
Please note that separation distances are solely based on pilot’s judgements and not necessarily accurate since horizontal and vertical separation distances can be hard to judge.
