Observer
NameTracy R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was an incredible sight that lasted quite a long time. Almost thought an airliner was coming down, but soon realized it was something from space. Absolutely amazing. Ran into the house to grab phone (had time to do it, it lasted so long), but picture is not great and was at the end of my sighting.
