Observer
NameMiranda W
Experience Level4/5
RemarksIt was the most stunning and beautiful thing I’ve ever seen and will probably ever see in my life. I was excited to think I saw it was just a shooting star but it the rainbow trail was truly magnificent. The sky was black with no clouds so it was very defined. There was no way anyone could’ve missed it. It was massively large and I thought it was going to explode the planet. I was in the car with music playing so I couldn’t hear anything. It was so huge and beautiful I thought I was hallucinating but I wasn’t.
