Observer
NameLee L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in the sky. 4 of us were our stargazing and all saw it. It lasted long enough for me to tell the other 3 to turn around and look at it, and all of us saw it very clearly break up. I might not have the time exactly right, but the other details are spot on.
