Observer
NameDawn H
Experience Level2/5
RemarksAt first I thought there might of been a low-flying plane because the light was so bright and it was coming in from the north east heading south west. But when I looked up I then thought maybe it was a firework but then I heard no sound and it was only one flash of light. I realized it was just a low-flying “shooting star”. There is another person out on the trail that side as well. I think we were both blown away about what we saw because it was so unusual. I think it’s so low flying on the horizon and so bright you can actually see the big ball break into smaller units and trail off.
