Observer
NameEvan C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was close enough to appear like a rogue firework but it lit up the night sky in a flash of green/blue with a tail in a trajectory that is not possible for ground based fireworks. Enough that my dog turned around and noticed it before I did. As it flew past overhead it changed to a bright orange/yellow before exploding into 3 pieces. No sound, and I remember specifically because I was listening for the whirl of a firework. Dead silent. Amazing if it truly was a fireball. I'm convinced and hope at the same time that it was.
