Observer
NameMelissa B
Experience Level4/5
RemarksIt really did move very slowly for something that large. The color was amazing and I'd never seen anything like it before. At first it looked like one bright, hazy, bluish object... then it broke and there were two... one red/orange fragment, following closely with the other bluish one. My family of five were standing in the yard, totally dumbfounded.
