Observer
NameAshley D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksNot sure if it was a fireball, UFO or plane on fire. It looked like all of the above combined with a sparkling fire trail behind the main ball of flames. Super cool and lasted a good long about 7 or 8 seconds long. Bright and didn’t fade. Wasn’t fast either like most shooting stars you can barely catch. It went slow enough to enjoy and make out what it was.
