Observer
NameMarc L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI have been in avaition as both a career and hobby for over 17yrs. I initially thought this was a military aircraft due to speed of the object. The object initially caught my eye due to changing intensity of the glow. (There were aircraft in the same airspace). Then witnessed a very bright flash and then the glowing trail above a ridge line of the Kooalu Mountain Range
