Observer
NameGary J
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was crossing the main street, facing towards Mt. Tabor when I saw this bright light in the sky. Due to it's trajectory and being such an irregular sight, I at first assumed it was an incoming missile and expected to see a terminal flash, and hear an explosion! It was bright, lighting up the dark clouds around it and (seemingly) steadily descending in an arc, before it disappeared just above the tree line at Mount Tabor
