Observer
NameJustin M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was super long, the tail seemed to stretch from the top of the sky all the way to the earth, which I thought it would hit. It was very large and seemed close, and incredibly intense light blue melting color. I’ll never forget it and hope some other people witnessed it. Justin
