Observer
NameJoe W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksWe were on highway 85 approaching Platteville. The road runs to SW until just north of town, then swings to S. Memory is vague enough that it’s possible that we were still on the SW-heading section of the road which would of course affect the viewing directions I reported.
